well we just moved in to a new house, so now, Miya has free run of the downstairs. We use baby gates to block off the upstairs. That will never change. The stairs are far too steep for her to be going up and down unsupervised. If only I could talk my cat into staying away from them. He thinks they're a ride at the fair the way he runs up and down...makes my heart beat fast just thinking about it.

Lilo is a great little dog and would probably be fine left out of her crate but I don't want to risk it.
I'm going to feel the same way, but with a big Chihuahua and a small Chihuahua, lol.

Love this idea! I read a few more people do it too.
We're getting a 3 bedroom (hopefully!) at the end of January, and it's going to be for all my sewing/couponing/photography stuff. The room will be puppy & toddler proofed, so maybe I'll be able to keep mine in there.
Thanks you guys!

Honey is left in the kitchen and hallway. When i thought we were 'done' with potty training, i let her have free run of the house (my old Chi had the whole house all the time) - this was too much too soon for her. She started peeing in random spots and ate the walls!
We are moving this weekend, so when i have to leave her in the new house, she will have the puppy proofed kitchen first, then the kitchen and hallway. I would like to leave her with the living room too, so she can get comfy on the sofa , but i think thats a few months down the line yet - i dont want chewed walls again!

Edie has always been crated when I'm not home. I'd like to allow her the freedom of the bedroom, but I'm a little nervous about it, I don't want her to have any house training accidents since she's been doing so well.

No crates here they are free to roam. I also give a treat as I leave as well. They are good in the house and never mess with anything.

We put Ike in a crate in the living room, he seems fine with it. My other dogs love it as they get a few hours rest from him. So far we have never been more then 4 hours away from the house.
