"safe area". A dog may not always need a crate to curb destructive behaviors or for potty training purposes, but the crate will have multiple uses and once a dog is comfortably crate trained, the crate need not be removed.
My puppy goes in his crate on his own at bedtime. I just wish I could find a chew proof dog bed! He tore up a really nice one.
Not all who wander are lost.
