Postby r vanderbeek » Wed Aug 01, 2007 10:03 pm

Roxy doesn't have a crate.
After doing my research homework, I now realize that Roxy really should have a crate.
Still, before I buy, I'd really love to see some of your crate set-ups.
Photos, por favor?
Hope this is an okay request.
Thanks.

What do you mean, "crate set-ups"? Where people have their crates set up? What they have in their crates? Crate covers?

Yes. Yes. And yes, please!
I'm just curious to see beds, bumpers, dividers, and crates themselves in an actual home environment - especially since my husband is taking some convincing when I say I think the crate should be in the living room, because that's where we spend most of our time.

Also, I think I know where I would like to place Rox's crate, but in order to have it fit, I think it would need to have a side door, so I'm wondering whether anyone else uses a double door crate, and whether or not it's something I'll really need.

Thank you sooo much.
This is exactly the kind of helpful response I was hoping for!

Well, I have two crates set up. I have one in my bedroom and one in the living area, near the computer. I just have regular fluffy dog beds in each one. Both crates are the same size as the one FBODGRL has (42"), and one of them (the one in the living area) is a double doored crate. I don't have an official cover, but the double doored one has a throw blanket over it, and a plant on top of it lol

I will take pictures, but I can't promise that they will upload. I have dial up so it takes years to upload images.

I just use regular plastic airline crates. I don't have dogs that are hellbent on chewing their way out, so it works great.

Sorry for the double post, I submitted too soon.

Lexus just has a thin fleece dog bed in her crate, and Duke has a flat sheet in his (he shreds anything else). Both crates are in our office. Lexus sleeps in her crate at night, and Duke sleeps on a blanket next to our bed.

You know, Rox isn't a hard core chewer either, so I wonder if we should opt for one of those...

Thanks.

It will definitely come in handy later if you ever need to fly your pup. Just make sure to get one with holes on all four sides. Plus I like the airline crates cause if you come home to a crate full of nasty poo or pee, it doesn't go all over your floor and walls.

We also use a plastic airline crate for Carrie, she gets a fleece blankie (but shreds beds or comforters to bits), a couple bones, a stuffed kong and water in the crate.

We don't put blankets over it because she likes to pull them through the little holes and chew pieces off... for a long time we didn't put anything for her to lay on, just the bones, but now she does't chew her blankie.

She carries the blankie to the living room during the day to lay on, and at night when I'm leaving for work (midnight shift) I say 'get your blankie, it's time for bed' and she trots right down with it in her mouth....

I really like the plastic crate, especially if you don't have a chewer...

Hey FBODGRL, how big is your dog? That crate looks so large and comfortable!

I also have two wire crated like the one previously posted...they're biggins! One is in my living room, kinda at an angle between my couch and my fireplace. It does double-duty as my end table! lol I have a fleece throw over the top of it that matches my couch. My cats bed also sits on top of it.

The second one is my dining room area (living room and dining room are one giant room, but sectional couch separates them) and I also have a throw on it. Its more obnoxious than the one in the living room, simply because there isnt much room right there (I need to just get rid of my dining room table since we dont normally use it anyway.)

Both of them have large, cushy rectangular beds in them from Sams Club (alot like the costco beds raved about in the other thread.) that match my living room decor.

I also have a small wire crate (not sure of the dimension) in my living room in between the front door and the TV stand for my pug. Its no taller than the stand and actually balances out the area a bit. Its also a great catch all spot when I walk in the door! lol

I would take pictures, but I killed my camera :oops:

Both crates are in the living room behind the seating area. They've only recently been reintroduced. Yoda didn't need a crate until his recent freak-out, from which he has apparently recovered (?). Kailie is 'crated' in the bedroom when we aren't home since she has learned to respect the rule about staying off the furniture. We brought her crate back in for the 4th of July and haven't moved it back out to the garage yet because she likes it.
Kailie's crate (36" double door with Ikea floor pillow as 'bed'. Inside the cover, the actual pillow is wrapped in a garbage bag cuz the cat is evil.):
Image
You can see her other containment option on the wall behind her crate-the eyebolt mounted in a stud. There is a 6ft cable tie-out that connects to that, which we used as we were phasing out the crate the first time. She got so upset about it though-like she thought we would abandon her on it. :frown: Hubby hates tripping over the 47 dog beds we have, so he is constantly stacking them on her crate. Why he insists on walking behind the couch I don't know. There's nothing else back there besides my sewing table.
Yoda's Crate (48" single door with Ikea outdoor lounge chair cushion as 'bed' with both ends folded under):

Eeeew, I just noticed that the end of my couch has that nasty dog rub ring on the bottom of the arm. :yucky:
