I have a 6 month old puppy. Hes trained. Goes potty outside and on a puppy pad if the need occurs and we dont get him out quick enough....I leave for work before my dh..he used to put him in his kennel before he left for work, but lately hes been just letting him out in the house while we're gone. When i come home hes always asleep on the couch on his blanket and always uses the pad (no prob there) im just worried he'll get into somthin n get hurt while were gone. He weighs 4 pounds if that. So far so good but it makes me nervous. He only has access to the kitchen n living room.

I've never used a crate/cage/kennel and never had an animal hurt themselves while I've been gone. I've had 4 dogs.

My dogs never hurt themselves while I am gone. They are small. My trash has a lid so they can't get into it. Usually they are buried under the pillows on my bed when I get home.

You need to talk to your husband then and tell him the dog needs to be in the crate. Crate training is great for some dogs, but not others.

Just keep anything poisonous out of his reach. I would probably also avoid leaving sharp objects on the floor. No food like things out that he might find interesting laying out.

Crates are great things but if he is behaving and not having problems I wouldn't worry.

Dogs don't usually get hurt while their people are away. I wouldn't worry if I were you. Just make sure any kind of plants are up. Some are poisonous to dogs and cats so just make sure they're out of reach in case he one day gets a taste for one.
