    Default Any suggestions on a great crate?

    So as you all know Chaos is a bit of a character. He has hissy fits and when he gets ticked off he kicks his kennel tray out and pees the floor. This isually happens when we leave him for work etc. And honestly i think he does it soon after we leave because his paws are getting somewhat of a yellow color on the white part of his coat :-( He is and has been trained for a while, he just is rebellious to being crated yet we cant give him free roam because he eats everything! Clothes, toys, anything he can. So I was thinking maybe a crate that has no tray to kick out??? Any suggestions or sites where you order kennels....or advice on how to make this behavior stop???? Im at my wits end, not to mention I cant stand the stain on his fur.....makes me feel like a bad momma even though he has a better life than me haha

    We had one from walmart too. The latch on it SUCKS! The Vari Kennel was a hand me down from over 10 years ago and the latch springs perfectly.

    Ours is the hard plastic with the metal door, no tray. Look on Craigslist and places like that. Can save you a lot of $$$.

    I said this on another thread.... But ever consider a play pen?! Made a huge difference when we switched Brooklyn from the crate to the pen! He has more room and doesn't feel so confined!

    I agree Paula..might be worth a try..can use an Xpen..to create a pen.?? Even put his crate inside with open door..then he can come in and out..

    No way can he clear a 5 or 6 foot high Xpen! It's a small space inside..he'd need springs on his feet..the Xpens come in varying heights...I've corralled dobies and Rotties with them...and very recently protected my Christmas tree with one from Jake...

    I don't know if he has an xpen or not. Watson has one that is 3ft high and he doesn't even try to escape. I am very happy with it so far. Gives him more room
