At least i think so. He has gone ten days without having an accident in the house. Yay! I so wanted him to be a dog that slept on the bed with me, but I am nervous about allowing him out of the cage at night. If he starts having an accident again, it would be hard to get him back in again.

He's cute! Is he very dominant? If so, being in the bed is bad. They see themselves as equals then. It's only a problem if you have a dog that tests you. My dog (A Saint Bernard) was very good about potty training. We only crated her for 2 weeks. I think you are pretty safe if he's already gone 10 days. What I did was leave my dog's crate open the first few nights. She actually went in it and put herself to bed for a few days. After that, she realized she could roam free and stopped using the crate on her own.

He wants to be dominant. He gets on the other dog in the house, but it seems to be a lot of play. It does get annoying though. I am still too nervous to leave him out of the cage at night.

You have said that you have trained your dog... It normal for a dog to have fun and everything... ITs your obligation to have your dog back in the cage... heheheheh!!! what do you think?
