    All of my dogs have been crate trained... My Bully is the only one who doesn't go in there to sleep, take naps, time for herself... my other 3 dogs- 2 labs and a king shepherd--- they all just come and go as they please when it comes to thier crates. At night when we go to bed- Sophie sleeps on the bed- the shepherd and yellow lab are usually in thier crates with the doors open- and the choc. lab lays anywhere there may be a pile of clothes or something personal that has my scent or my husband's sent on it. The choc lab is the only one who doesn't go into a crate when we leave- he has full range of the house- but the other 3... can get into mischief... so in thier crates they go when we leave the house. Then I know when I return home- the house will be in tact... LOL

    I learned about crate training almost 30 years ago with a Sheltie I got as a pup. Have been a fan of the entire concept ever since.

    We just got Gracie a week ago, and while we were told she didn't require a crate we found that she seemed to seek out things to get under (tables, desks chair legs). She's still getting used to the "city" sounds around here. She's always lived in the country prior to coming here from Missouri. She's a little timid about all the strange sounds. On Friday we decided to get her a crate and she seems to love it. It's where she goes for naps or just to lay down. She'll go to the crate when she's startled, then come back out again when she's feeling safe again.



    I realize this type of crate wouldn't work for a puppy who's still "teething". But for an adult with a super sweet personality it's perfect.

    Reggie has a crate and has used it from 8 weeks old but he doesn't like the door being closed and cries if I do so not sure if it qualifies as 'crate trained'. He basically puts his toys in it, will play and sleep in it throughout the day and night but always with the door open. If the door is inadvertently pushed too by the children he will painstakingly pull the door back open wide with a claw!

    I have put Hoosier in a crate since we got him at 8 weeks. He only goes in there at night. Recently, I have been putting him in there when I leave the house. He has become very destructive lately. He is 7 months now, and began to eat my walls. He did very well as a puppy running the house while we were gone, now things have changed.

    @sprinter15jr Good idea to crate him while you are gone. Really- they miss you when you are not there. Dont want to eat or drink. They actually get depressed/nervous while you are not home, so best for him to feel secure. And also best for your walls!
