Today, my husband left our untrained puppy out of its kennel when he left for work. I got home and all of the baby books my parents just bought for us that were on the coffee table in a backpack were completely destroyed, along with the bag and parts of our wall. FML

in 'murica, their walls aren't made out of brick and mortar like sane people around the world use to build. It's usually plaster/some kind of wood (I forget what it's called, dry wall?) so it's quite easy for a dog to actually work their magic and destroy a wall, especially if YOU LOCK THEM UP IN THE FUCKING KENNEL WHILE GOING TO WORK YOU MONSTERS

Not plaster anymore. It’s drywall


Using a kennel is actually a common and humane way to train a dog. You want it big enough they can turn around, but not so big they can pee without laying in it. It’s really no different than using a playpen for a toddler.

I have a husky. It’s not my first rodeo with the fur devils. Crating has saved them from so much trouble. The one time mine was left out for a ten minute errand, he ingested 5 bags of gummy bears after mountain climbing and opening a cabinet. After a night in the er to take care of the blockage, pancreatitis, and liver numbers that were off, he would do it again if given the chance. At least it didn’t end in a huge vet bill I hope.

YDI. You don't lock your untrained (or trained) puppy in a kennel for the day. What are you going to do when you actually pop out a human? Just lock him/her in their cot and fuck off to a dinner date with friends?

“Those kind of behaviors” happen regardless. My dog — never crated — ripped up the linoleum and chewed on the concrete when he was a puppy. Because that’s what puppies do, crates or not.
