One of my coworkers brings her 11 week old lab puppy into work every day which means i cant bring mine in. she recently offered to leave him home in a crate so i could bring Baxter in again. Is this even safe? I didn't think an 11 week old puppy would be able to cross his paws alone all day. I gently pushed her on it and she said "Oh yeah he's crate trained." Seriously?
