We've let Gage stay out of his crate for a couple of nights to see how he does, but the only problem is that after he's gotten enough sleep for awhile (usu. around 2-4 AM)he'll go from room to room and wake everyone up, looking for someone to play with. He's basically like "hey! what are you still doing in bed? Get up and do something with me!" Which is not the message you want to get so early in the morning. You can send him away, but the damage is done, because it takes awhile to get back to sleep. Did anyone else have this problem and get through it? How'd you get your dog to let you sleep?
