This has been an eventful labor day weekend. We went on our first camping trip. It was surprisingly cold at night, just over 50 degrees with steady wind. We went with a primitive camp site. Our only source of heat was our fire. We roasted cheese sticks, attempted roasting tofu, and of course s’mores (yep, we’re novice campers). We also cooked soup. A lot of other campers had their dogs with them, maybe sometime in the near future we will bring our Shiba along for the trip.
We have slowly started shopping for puppy stuff. I recently had a friend offer me a crate that her family no longer uses. However, it is a fairly large crate. Is this a bad idea? I’ve heard that if the crate is too big for the dog it will encourage him to eliminate in his crate. Has anyone found this to be true? If not, that wold be great cause I would love a free crate!
