Zeeva Took my two about 4-5 years to have that privilege. She is still very young but it's never too early to start training.

You could try keeping her in your room, a babygate across the door or close the door. That way if she does get restless or destructive you should hear it and you can redirect her to her bed
I had tried keeping her in my room at night (although she was closer to 4months old) and she chewed a hole in my wall. Granted, she has a lot more to distract her now with many toys. She has a elbow bone I bought her recently and she fell in love with it. She will trot around the house with it in her mouth all day. I want to give it another shot but still unsure.

What she does when your asleep...

So i have this 10month old GSD/Rottie mix that has issues being in the crate at night. She whines for about half an hour and then she is pretty calm. Before she didn't even stop throughout the night so this has improved! However, I would really like to only have her in the crate from the time that my girlfriend and I are at work (max 4-5 hours in crate). The only issue is that when she was a little younger I tried this out for a few weeks or so. The first couple days she did fine! However, when she gets bored, she gets very destructive...I mean chewing on walls destructive. She has tons of toys!! She gets walked twice a day once in the morning once in the evening with training and play throughout the day when we are both around the house. If I knew she wouldn't chew on anything I would love to leave her out of the crate at night but I just don't feel confident to do so right now. Help please and thank you!
