We're at our last straws with Luka. We keep hoping we can trust him, but in the last 3 months he has destroyed our rug, part of our kitchen, and now part of our couch. His separation anxiety is just too high. We haven't been keeping the dogs in a crate simply because our house is so small we have nowhere to put it. We've been trying to keep them in the kicthen, but Luka keeps escaping (and destroying things in the process). We would leave them in the backyard if we weren't afraid of them escaping (which they have), the rain, and how dirty they would get. Our last option is the just keep them in the basement during the day. I'm going to have to puppy proof it first, but for the rest of the week they are staying in their old accommodations. It's tight, not really too cozy, but they made their bed, they can lay in it.
