the longest Nyx would ever be in a crate/kennel is maybe 2 hours at times. we are working on training with her big time right now. but she will only listen to me, she will sit for someone and what not but that far and few unless they have treats..
Nyx doesn't mind a kennel/crate( or whatever you want to call it) she will go in her buddy kennel at times and actually sleep there.
Nyx wont clear a baby gate over even try and go through one. that be said *knocks on wood* she got a scare as a pup but bumping into one n it crashed down so she not a fan of trying to knock them over. she can easily clear one if she so choose
