    We left him alone again to roam free yesterday and again good results I think he just sleeps.
    It really hurts me to put him in his crate so it makes me very happy that he behaves when not in it.
    First foto is if him waiting for my wife the second one is that he's so happy I'm home both taken yesterday.

    Great to hear

    Holly is a little older now and we leave her out to have free range in the house if we're gone for a few hours. We're pretty sure she takes a nap and we leave the TV on for her so the house is not completely silent. Holly still sleeps in her crate and we will crate her if we are gone for an extended period. When she was younger she chewed up the window seals pretty good so we'll have to replace those if we move out of this house

    I love it so much here I'm having my own house built.

    Wow what an awesome place! You'll have to post new pics when it's done.

    I'm usually always home if not someone else is. But if no one is home we always crate for safety reasons.

    What a handsome boy! The house looks amazing... Best of luck with the build! Banks can be trusted out of crate, but we still confine. Her to the master bedroom just as a safety to her...

    Love that picture of her waiting at the window. Also, just wondering, for those of you who do let dog roam the house even if it's just for short trips out at what age did you start doing that? Our puppy is 6 months and fully crate trained. We haven't had any accidents in the house for awhile but I definitely don't want to jinx that. I noticed Julzz9170 started Romeo at a year and a half. Is that pretty standard?

    We have recently started letting June stay out of her crate when we're gone... just to the gym or store or something. Last week I left her out all day while I was at work (without my bf knowing haha) and she was fine! She's usually sleeping on the couch when we come home

    Yay, I know that's exciting. Both of ours were crated while we were at work for the first several months we had them. Then we baby gated them in the kitchen until they approached a year old before allowing free roam of the house. Thankfully neither of them were naughty puppies. One had a paper fetish and the other a shoe fetish. We just made sure not to leave those things within reach and when we forgot...well you know. We did allow free foam once they were about 4 months if we were only going to be gone for an hour or just a bit longer. I think letting them out while you make quick errands is a great way for puppies to be successful and be rewarded for proper behavior. I am a big believer in positive reinforcement. Provide attainable goals and your pup will learn quickly what you expect of them.
    Happiness is looking at your dogs face...and forgetting all your problems

    Patton's 6 months and we've been letting him stay downstairs by himself all morning while we're getting ready for work upstairs for a while now and it's worked out well. But even though we can't see him, he knows we're up there. Over the weekend was his big debut. He was left alone downstairs by himself while we went to the grocery store. SUCCESS! He just sleeps on the couch when we're not around!
    Proud to be Patton's Mommy.

    For me it feels like I've won the lottery that I don't have to lock him up. It hurt me locking him in his crate.

    Milly was crated from the day I got her. She prefers to go into it at night and does fine when we leave for a few hours. I never leave her out of it because she is a chewer even though she hasn't touched furniture. She will pee on my bed tho if I leave her out because she gets mad we didn't take her. If I'm gone longer she usually comes with if possible. She's a year old now.

    She sees it as her "cave" since dogs are den animals. and prefers it to watch ppl walk by in the window.

    What a awesome house you are building, please post some more photos when it is done. I really miss it over there, but also love the states. My soon to be wife has never been back with me and I can't wait to take her. I still have some family over there and my little brother just moved back there not to long ago. Maybe we could get together if I ever make it back over there? ( sorry about the World Cup, or are you a England fan?)
