at 11 months i think she should of been out of the bedroom with free roam of the house. at 11 months shouldn't she be house trained and know not to rip things up?? at 11 months why shouldn't either dog behave in from of each other??? keep the crate you might need it later.

After waking from our nap, I took her out to potty (no leash, she did great), we came in she got a treat and she's been a near perfect behaved little pup all day (big turn around from last week, when she was not behaving so well).
So, could it be the right time to get rid of her crate? I never had a crate with Elle, so I'm wondering if Emma can behave so well with Elle sleeping in the room too?
