Worst thing Rosey does is let Harley out, but Harley's the only good ferret, so I don't have a problem with her being out (Except that Harley knows how to open the fridge...)

Zander's bratty phase ended at around a year old. Soon as he hit a year, he was super chill. For a Sibe, anyway. He was still crated until we got Dante a year later, but after that he's always had free roam of house or room.

The other dogs were trustworthy right about a year, too.

Lays on her back, puts her front paws wedged in the bottom, and pushes it open. Both her and Ren can do it, but Ren's worse cause he then jumps up to the top shelf where the treats are

I have sense stopped allowing them in the kitchen during play time, so Ella doesn't know how

The "brat" phase ends when you are their ALL. Not when they are puppies, not in the terrible twos and certainly NOT when they are teenagers.

In my experience, depending on the breed...2-5 years. In general, the BEST years are between 3-8.

Grant is eleven. Years, not months. It never ended.
