Jones got free run of the house at about 18 months old give or take...

Been a loose dog ever since... unless he's not feeling well, then I will crate him to keep the house clean

Fosters are typically crated, unless older, and after a trial run

Kyrah was never put in her kennel. Though there were circumstances that led to that. She has always done better loose than crated. Now the terriers on the other hand were crated when young. Cujo who just turned 9 is about to be crated again. He has started all of a sudden shredding things randomly around the house. Mostly the bathroom garbage can.

You will never know unless you try. I would do short test times. For Cujo now I put a piece of paper on the floor for him to shred so hopefully he wont go to the bathroom garbage can in case I forget to shut the door.

I was really worried about leaving Lexi out of her crate while I was at work at first.
I don't think I gave her the chance until she was roughly a year old.

I started by closing the bedroom door and leaving her crate door open so she could wander the bedroom while I was sleeping.
I then extended the space into the hallway but had a gate put up at the end.
After that I extended it further to include the kitchen area but had the gate blocking off my living room.
And then finally I gave her the living room as well. This was probably the most nerve racking move so I would come home from work to check on her and let her out...

Not once has she destroyed anything that she shouldn't.

I dont even have a crate. All my dogs have free roam of the house when we are home and when we are gone. We never EVER stay gone for more than a few hours, though, and I'm quite sure they all camp out on the beds and furniture and sleep while we're gone. Once in a while, DJ will get ahold of some sort of paper out of the trash can by the computer and make confetti while we're gone, but that's about the worst that happens.
