Leaving them alone out of crate
I would like to read the advice and experience of when others began leaving their Vs alone, uncrated in the house for short periods of time. Jax is only 8 months now, and I know he is too immature to be left alone for even a few minutes. I am wondering, however, when I might begin training him for such a time and how I might do so.
Here is a little background: I work from home full time, so I am always with him. He only sleeps in his crate when he naps (currently twice a day) and goes to sleep at night. I take Jax with me whenever/wherever I can. I do take him to daycare a few times a month for the socialization and so that I can get some work done. Other than those few occasions, I rarely leave him alone outside of the hours he is sleeping, so I fear that I may have been setting us both up for failure. Any training suggestions and tips are welcomed!
