I’ve been more of a cat person my entire life...so I didn’t realize how intense the conversation about raising a puppy can get. I was reminded yesterday of this Portlandia sketch.

Anyway, thank you to everyone for your advice. I really feel naive for dipping my toe into the great crate debate without knowing how heated the opinions are!

I included a video of my dog running at the dog park, which she goes to twice a day.
