My Coco was fine once she was about a year old. We started off very slowly though by only leaving her for 10 minutes, then 30 minutes and so on. Each time we came home and she had been fine we upped it a little. She has not used her crate at all since she was about 1 although I still have it folded up behind the couch. She always liked her crate but loves sleeping on the couch more when we are not home lol. My hubby doesn't like her on the couch but I have been happy she has not eaten the couch so I may be a little more lax than he:). It takes a lot of time for them to learn and for you to trust them. We also have a cat who tolerates Coco. Coco loves Tiki and is always excited to see her. What is funny is that I always come home at lunch to let Coco out. A lot of times I come home to Coco asleep on the couch and Tiki asleep on the back of the couch above Coco. I think they like each other more than I realize lol. Good luck!!:butfly:
