Get a new trainer, that man is crazy and has no idea what he is talking about!
the trainer we use says 2 years. even when fully potty trained and no chance of tearing anything up. his reasoning is they will become dominant if not in the crate and there's a chance of the dogs attacking you in your sleep. i dunno, sounds silly to us. wife and i go against his advice and just keep the dogs loose in the bedroom with the door closed when we sleep.
