    Question What does your bully like in his crate?

    Hello,

    Winston hates anything in his crate besides his two soft blankets and a towel. I always want to put something more comfortable in for him, but he doesn't want any part of it. I have tried crate liners and within minutes he pees on them..totally on purpose. Is there a reason for this? Even when his bed is made up of blankets and the towel he pushes them out of his way and lays on one layer of material. I doubt its because he is hot...its freezing here.
    Just wondering if anyone in in the same boat or has any suggestions for me.

    Thanks!!!

    What Brutus likes, and gets are two different things! When I was putting nice comfy beds and blankets with him, he peed on them. I got tired of doing his laundry every day, so I switched to some old towels, and haven't had a problem since! What is with these guys? If it were me, give me a super comfy bed & a toy

    Winston gets a crate pad and a few of his favorite toys. Usually he pushes the pad out of the way and lays on the crate tray by itself. In the morning, he'll grab one toy and drag it outside with him to go potty. He ignores most everything in there when he's kenneled, but if he's out to play the cats like to sneak in and lay on his fuzzy pad. Winston won't tolerate that, either! Yesterday afternoon we watched him pull the pad out from underneath one of our cats. "That's MINE, kitty!" He wasn't aggressive about it, so we let him do it, laughing all the while.

    I wish I had had a video of it because I would love to share! It's just that Winston is constantly catching me without a camera nearby when he does all these crazy bulldog things.

    Lola likes just a thin bed and nothing else. She does not like toys in there at all!

    Matilda is ALL about the comfy blankets and toys in her crate! What's funny though is that they have to be arranged a certain way. EVERY time I wash her bedding, I will put all her stuff back and try to replicate how she likes it - but its never good enough. She will go to her crate, take out every single toy, blanket, and bedding one by one. Then, one by one, she'll put them back in the way SHE likes it. It happens every time. She may be a little OCD... hahaha

    Herman's man cave has a too small crate pad, his sleeping bag on top of that and some self-heating pad on top of that. I also put in two blankets, and i hang his puppy blanket on the side to block the air. In the back standing up is his 'heater' (my old heating pad wrapped in a towel). THEN i cover the crate with a velvet blanket. Every night I got in arrange it the way IIIIIIIIIII want it. Considering what you have all said, I think he's just tolerating what I'm doing. There might be too much stuff in there for him to rearrange LOL

    I just worry that he's cold

    Diesel doesn't want anything in his crate, not even a soft blanket ... when I put a crate pad in, he will push it into the corner of the crate and lay on the plastic pan. I even put a Coleman Dog Sleeping Bag in there and he was able to push it out of the way enough that his belly touched the plastic crate pan. During the winter Molly will let me put a crate pad in her crate and not be fussy but during the summer she will push hers out of the way too so that she can have her belly on the plastic crate pan.

    After reading all these post I can finally say that my Ellie is not weird. she destroyed two beds I put in her create ate half of a towel i put in after so I decided that it was best for her to not have anything in her crate besides her toys and water bowl. She loves sleeping on that plastic tray of her crate so I guess she'll stay like that till she's bigger she is currently 8 months hopefully by then she wont pee or destroy beds.

    Porky doesn't have a crate she has her own room lol when we got her we didn't have room for a crate so when we had to leave we shut our bedroom door n she learned that's where she had to stay now if we say time to go she runs to her room but she does have her crate pad in there n she just goes in n sleeps (we have a crate now for our camping trips n she just likes her pad in it)
