Some dogs are crate trained and some are not. Most dogs that are crate trained feel like its thier safe space.  Your dog sounds well loved and taken care of.

@star282:  i dont think your abusive but i dont like crating. 8 hours a day? Mm thats a lot. 

Can i suggest maybe closing off a section of the house with baby gates? Maybe the kitchen? And childproof cabinets he can get too?

@star282:  No. You are not abusing your dog. In fact you sound like a wonderfully responsible dog owner! Don’t let her get to you, she doesn’t know what she is talking about. 

You are doing just fine with your dog and as long as it is getting plenty of exercise, it’ll be quite happy hanging out in the crate and sleeping the day away!

@star282:  Oh lord, if you’re abusive then I am torturing my dogs. They are crated 8-9 hours each day. They’re 2.5 and 3.5 years old, so they can hold their bladder/bowels for that length of time. If they get bored they chew. So, they’re both crated for their safety and to keep the house from being destroyed. As long as the crate is large enough for the dog to stand and turn around, I think it’s fine.

@star282:  for puppies and very young dogs a crate can keep them from dangerous situations. They like to chew on things, including cables from appliances… While they are plugged in! That and many other things.
