I am still not sure why he is crated when you are home? He should be with you?
Huh? I never said he is crated when we are home… in fact, he never is. I know he hates it because I tried to get him to take his nap in there once when getting him adapted to crate training. Key word: once. He hated it - He spends 99% of his time with us.
Anyways, I was just curious as to if I should be buying one, since I read somewhere that others put the crate inside of the ex-pen. The whole point of this question was that he is out with us all of the time when we are home, and therefore I don't know what it is used for since I know every other basenji owner also keeps their pup out when they are home.
Thanks to those that answered the question! I guess he has no use for it!
