A couple weeks ago, coincidentally on her first bday I left her out of the cage at night accidentally. I got woken up with kisses and yelled her to go in the cage downstairs and she did. I did that 2 days in the row but dont want to push it. Today I left her free in the house while shopping for the first time. Everything seemed ok, but when I called her upstairs she acted guilty for no reason and went into her cage- she might have snuck up there and done something? I dont see her peeing or pooping so who knows? At least were working toward her being a free dog- she cant protect my house from in a cage anyways.
