|Sandy's crate is in my bedroom. Most convenient since she sleeps in my room. Sometimes she'll sleep on my bed. Other times she'll sleep in her crate. I don't crate her when I'm gone most of the time. I have here and there. Her crate is mostly for sleeping and relaxing.
Sweeney, Meepster, and Ninja have crates in the living room. Ninja isn't here all the time, of course, but he still has a crate for when we're dog sitting him. They're all in corners so that they're kept out of the way. They, too, are kept open while we're home for free access. Most of the dogs have taken to using them. Occasionally I'll catch two of them cuddled together in one of the crates, which is adorable. Sometimes, I'll even catch Noble (the cat) sleeping in one (usually curled up against Sweeney and purring). Sweeney is almost always crated while we're gone (as he's gotten used to it - we crated in the beginning because he felt comfortable in his crate, but now we crate as a sort of... routine). Meepster is crated occasionally. When Ninja is here, he's crated while we're gone, too. Precious and Chi Chi aren't crate trained - but do use the crates to sleep in.
Lilo's crate is in a back room. The door to the room is always open so she can access it. She's crated while we're gone, too. I'm glad I don't have more than one crate in my room, to be frank. With a hamster and gerbils in there, a lot of my space is already taken up! Sandy's crate fits just perfectly, though.
