My 11 year old, Lincoln, and our 8 mos old, Bear, are allowed to roam the house with the exception of when we are out, Bear is in his crate. However, they both sleep in our room at night. Bear tries to give us equal amounts of attention. He’ll go upstairs for a while to hang out with my husband in his office and then come down and spend time with me. He does this several times a day. Lincoln doesn’t have much stamina so he sleeps a lot wherever he wants.

Jupiter (3 years old) and Neptune (1 year old) are allowed the run of the house when we are home, except the bedrooms because Neptune will pick kleenex and other gross things out of garbage cans and eat them.

At night, they're both in their room (one of the bedrooms, converted to a dog room) but that's only because of Neptune. I feel sure my older boy would be fine loose in the house, I just don't trust the puppy.

If everyone is out of the house for more than - say half an hour - the puppy is crated in their room, and Jupiter is locked in there, too - otherwise Neptune would scream the house down without his brother.

When we're home, they follow us around and hang out wherever we are - house wide.

My 3 year old can roam the house if someone is home. She will mostly stay where ever we are though! She likes to lay on the cooler tile in the bathroom so she will go in there and sleep occasionally. At night time she's in her crate next to my bed. She also goes in her crate when we leave! She has bad anxiety and feels safer in her crate!

Moses had the run of the house since he was eight months old. He primarily stays upstairs (two story house) or will sometimes go and lie on the cool tile on our landing by the front door.

Elijah, my one-year-old, is only allowed free run when someone is home. If we’re gone for more than a half-hour, he goes in his crate. He still likes to get into gross stuff (bathroom wastebasket), so leaving him with free run for more than a half an hour is dangerous. Maybe he’ll be better once he reaches two years....
