I have a Border Beagle (6-7 years old) who is just the sweetest thing, and although I give her all the attention I can while at home and she's as happy as can be, we have to keep her in a crate while we're at work because when we first got her, she displayed some destructive tendencies, such as ripping up paper towels and other things around the room, peeing on the carpet, and even once or twice pooping, despite having been walked right before we left.
She doesn't hate her crate, as she will often trot off to nap there even while we're home. However, I feel bad that all she can do while we're at work is sleep. I'd like to make or buy something for her, maybe for her crate, that can keep her entertained. I had planned a while back to make an automatic food dispenser I could trigger remotely to give her some of her morning / evening food throughout the day, but haven't gotten to it yet.
I've also thought about attaching a small screen to her crate so she could watch Netflix or something while we're away.
Does anyone have any idea what I could do to help her have a better day?
