I’m curious at what age many of you have stopped using the crate at night and just let your pup sleep in a bed in a special room? Currently Sophie’s crate is in my bedroom and she sleeps in it, but I let her sleep out if it during her spay recovery and she didn’t get into anything, but then I put her back in when the cone came off. Also, I’m thinking if conditioning her to stay in my laundry room when home alone instead if in her crate. She’s 8 months old snd I feel guilt leaving her in her crate longer then 1-2 hours if I need to go somewhere. But I read labs can be destructive even at 8 months. She’s not destroyed anything yet of mine to date. She sticks to her toys and bones. Any feedback or personal experiences will be appreciated!
