Misread what you said, came back to edit. She held it for 4 hours this morning. I don't let her go for more than 4 hours at a time in the crate. Monday was 3, today I bumped it up just to see and she did fine. There was an hour and a few minutes between me leaving after her mid morning break and returning for lunch...which is when she let go.
I run home, I work nearby thankfully, and take her outside, play with her, in addition to giving her water at her mid morning break and food and water at lunch time. Do you think that's too much time?
She's not eating and drinking in my absence so I was thinking once I took her outside after eating and drinking that she would be fine since she had exposed of everything.
