We have a 13-month old bully and have experimented twice with leaving her out of the crate unattended for a long period (more then a couple of hours). The first time, a couple of months ago, we left her baby-gated in the kitchen and the second time, last night, we left her in the living room with all other doors closed (she only had access to the living room). In both instances she literally chewed through the moulding on a door frame. We leave her with all her toys and the TV on. For times less than one hour she seems to do ok but anything longer than that and I guess she just goes bonkers. I realize this may be a sign of boredom or maybe anxiety but how can I get her to stop? Will I ever be able to leave my baby out of the crate?
Thanks for the input!
