Free roam of house while gone
At what age did you allow your dog to have free roam when you were gone? Did you start by running small errands, and gradually build up to when you're at work?
My boy is 2.5 years old and we still crate him while we're at work or leave the house (got him at 8 weeks). I moved into a new house this past June and gave him free roam at first. He quickly lost that privilege when he decided to chew the molding and drywall in the bedroom that he was left in.
I would ideally like to give him free roam by the time he's 3, however I don't want to come home to another incident like that again.
