Cider spent the night out of his crate last night! He did really well... except he is a bed hog! I think we are going to have to bring his bed from downstairs upstairs at night and have him sleep on that because I had to get up at 5 this morning to sleep on the couch because I couldn't get comfortable with DH and dog taking up all the bed!
But no accidents.. slept all night... let DH know when he needed to go out this morning... so far so good we will try again tonight and hopefully this means no crate at night!
Right now he is limited just to our bedroom... but we will be trying to figure out some way to block off the stairs so he can't get down them and also the office... since that is where the litter boxes are (can't wait to get a house so those can go in the basement!) and then we can open the door so the cats can come and go in our room.
But overall a success! We are so proud of him!
