Brando & Ruby are crated during work days (Mon - Thurs), out every night and all day/night Fri - Sun.
Ruby I would be willing to try to have free reign because she is pretty good and provided I had everything put away, I think she'd be fine. She's escaped from the crate/ex-pen a couple of times and all she does is bring her toys & treats up on my bed and makes a home for herself for the day.
Brando on the other hand is a wise guy…I wouldn't trust him at all at this point. He can be free and I can't find him and go into my bedroom and he is: chewing on my bed, pulling all the bedding out of his and Ruby's crate and then proceeds to rip it, into everything...just a general marauder and not to be trusted.
Because Brando can't be trusted, both Ru & Brando are crated during the work week...I don't think it would be fair to him to crate him and let her run free. Granted Brando has only been here a few months so things may change the longer he is here, but he is such a smart a$$ at this point.
I also think it may be different having one dog vs two...Ruby and Brando are definitely partners in crime and I think if Brando started damaging something, Ruby would join in the fun I'm afraid.
