I got a knock on the door from the RSPCA today...Apparently they don't like the fact that I crate my dog (a german shepherd) even though I take it for lots of walks (8-10 a day), keep it in the front yard when its sunny and keep it nice and healthy. The dog is mainly crated overnight when I am sleeping and stays in there for roughly 4-6 hours a day. I keep the dog inside as all my neighbours smoke and my previous dog died prematurely from cancer possibly from all the passive smoke it has inhaled. Now, the RSPCA is threatening to take him away from me unless I put him outside ignoring the fact that I take very good care of him and that he is not in the crate for very long. Is it really illegal to crate my dog?
