I want to crate train my 7 month old staffy Vincent since he's still having toilet accidents (getting better, though) and is destructive when we leave the house. We have another dog, Max, who lives with us. He's housebroken and well behaved indoors. Right now they have their own beds which are next to each other in a corner of the living room, although they often snuggle up together on one bed.
I was thinking of putting the crate in their sleeping area with Max's bed next to it/close by.
Also will it be okay with one dog crated and the other roaming free, or should I try and crate train them both? Max is fine in the house but I'm anticipating some sort of jail break scenario if I leave one in and one out. I'd prefer not to have them both in one crate since their play come sometimes get too intense if unsupervised and I'm trying to discourage Vincent from being too nippy and pushy.
Would appreciate your advice and experience!
