I have a new 10 week old female Rottweiler puppy and she has been with me for a week now. I opted to not get her a crate at first to see how she adjusts to a dogbed and her size. I plan on having her both inside and outside and she has full range of the lounge/kitchen, and my room while I'm home. She joins me in the study if working there but I've only left her home alone for a few hours in the past week. She sleeps on her mat or bed in my ensuite at night but I'm considering getting a crate for training and calming her or giving her a space of her own. My concern is with her current energy (she is curious and playful) that with me giving her so much freedom she may get confused about boundaries while growing up. My family has had rotties for 30 years now but they raise them as outside dogs and this is my first pup alone. So to crate or not to crate. .
