Yes and it was the best! We rarely use the crate anymore, just leave it open for her to go in and out of as she pleases. We bring it when we travel, like to my parent's new home where you're not allowed to touch anything (I call it The Museum), we can safely leave her in her crate without fear of her chewing something I will never be able to replace. hahahaha
I crate trained because I was a college student when I got Til and wanted to make sure she didn't destroy my house or hurt herself while I was in class. Bullie pups eat absolutely anything, there's no telling what they could find or choke on when you're not watching. Matilda once ate a HOLE in the WALL when I left her out of her crate one night.
It also sped up potty training (I got her at 8 wks old, she was fully potty trained 2 weeks later). If you do crate training correctly, you appeal to the pup's den-instincts and they love their crate. Matilda runs to her crate if she hears loud noises or something because she knows she's safe there. She also prefers to sleep alone in her crate than in bed with me (which totally broke my heart but whatever). It's also nice if you've got a lot of commotion going on - like moving! When the movers were here, they were slamming things, leaving doors open, etc. So I crated Til and she took a little nap safely away from all the chaos.
It's quite literally her favorite place in the world and when I have to break it down to pack for travel, she gets seriously upset with me and will lay in the spot where the crate was in protest! Or when I wash her bedding, she actually goes in and takes everything out that I touched and puts in back in herself. Apparently I don't do it correctly. THAT is how much she loves that crate. hahaha
