Oooh thank you, thank you so much!!Hi Frida,
I just turned 11 months too. My people leave me for 5-6 hours at a time on Mon, Wed, Thurs, and on weekends, and I am fine in my crate. i never soiled my crate before. I don't mind it, i just sleep.
My person says she thinks there'd a been a lot more destruction if I was left inside the house for that long. 11 months is better because we don't teethe as much. but i still do like to chew things at my age.
hmmm... I think i'll refer you to another thread, and you can see all the things a basset (or any dog) can chew up. I think you can do it if you can puppyproof well, prob best to confine to 1 or 2 rooms, and if you don't mind it if for some reason your basset chewed stuff up whatever's in the room. My person's last dog was kept in kitchen w/doggy door to outside, and chewed the wood around the cabinets, for example.
ok, findin' the thread for ya... http://www.basset.net/boards/general-basset-hound-discussion/13628-ohhh-gerald-5.html

My main concern was if she would get lonely
