Jacey's first day crated and on drugs: two Valium and one Clomicalm before work. One Valium, one Clomicalm after work. I was gone about 10.5 hours. (12-9 shift.)
She was noisy, stressed. Shredded the puppy pad. Peed a bit in the crate, but the pad absorbed it, so I didn't have to bathe her when I got home.
All well on the house-breaking front. And five minutes after she finished dinner, she was conked out on the sofa, sound asleep.
But she's more antsy about my being out of her sight. I can't go to the kitchen for a drink without a little jingling shadow tagging along.
