Hi guys We have an 8 week old cocker spaniel pup. We are crate training him and so far so good (sleeps in there at night, enforced naps with a small amount of whining). We are working on him entertaining himself a little more in preparation for me going back to work in a couple of weeks. My partner works from home so will be here but will be working. So we recently got a playpen and our plan is to train him to be in there when he's not napping so my partner can get some work done (he will still pop to see him for treats and attention when he can). Problem is, the way our house is configured (if you know English new builds, you know!) means I can't attach his crate to the pen or have it inside so pup won't be able to nap voluntarily. He's in a good routine so my partner will just put him in his crate when it's nap time. Does this sound like an okay plan? He has a bed in his crate, should I put that in the pen incase he wants to rest? Don't want to confuse him or affect the crare training in any way! Thanks guys and sorry if this was a long read!
