Chloe: yes, all of the time. She is never crated.
Cynder: yes, all of the time. She is never crated.
Abrams: not as of now, no, as he is still being potty trained. I'm hoping when he's grown we'll be able to not use a crate.

Cooper: no, he'll poop or pee on the floor.
Gracie: no, she'll poop on the floor.

Buzz, yes. He used to be hell on four legs but now he just likes to look out the windows and meander around, and sleep.

Bailey is pretty much never in a crate now that she lives with my mom. She still chooses to sleep in hers but there's no need for the door to be shut. She used to be the animal we'd put away because the two cats and Buzz were always fine together and she wasn't.

Gaby, the foster, could be loose if the cats were put away. But, she's a foster so she's crated anyways.

Izzie is fine to be left loose, but I crate her anyways because I am a control freak and I don't want her flying off the back of a couch and damaging herself.

The other pugs are not crate trained at all so they've always been out. They occasionally eat things they shouldn't.

Gage no, he has broken 3 windows and 5 screens when he has decided to try and bark at someone and forgotten they were there. He doesnt jump out, just runs his giant melon head into them .

Diesel no, I have caught that dog on the fridge...there is no putting stuff away enough.

Bristol yes, she just sleep somewhere until our return lol.

Yes, but she's crated anyway. I think it's very important that she's familiar with and comfortable in the crate just in case (god forbid) of a back issue. She's also crated so she doesn't jump off the back of the couch or climb onto the desk and jump off that!

I prob could leave Muffin out, but I don't. He has a 42" crate and he basically just sleeps. Walsh was a no. He was always going, and he also had a large crate.

I don't think I'd ever leave a dog uncrated for more than an hour or so... The peace of mind that comes with a crate is priceless.

Only in the bedroom.

But we have a roommate, so it would be impolite to leave the dogs loose in the whole house.

All three of mine are fine loose in the house for up to 8 hours with no garbage down.

Rocky and Baxter are left out but are restricted to certain areas of the house when we're not home. They have full run of the kitchen, hallway and laundry room but aren't allowed upstairs, in the living room, bathroom and den when we're out.

Zuma and Zinga would be fine, but we have cats that they love to pester, so I crate them. Zip Tie is still a puppy, so for his safety, he's never left loose.
