Sinister was crated at night until he was 6 months old, then I left the crate door opened but he still slept in it. He was completely crate free when he turned 2 years old. He's been free ever since.

Draco has never been crated at night, he is free in my room. He is only crated while I am away at work, he's only 6 months old so I won't even attempt to let him be crate free until he is at least a year old.
