Where do you keep your crate?

    I was wondering where everyone keeps their crate?

    I want to change my living room around and put Debo's crate into our bedroom instead, the only thing is, is that our bedroom is very dark (my husband works swing and we have a stationary black sheet over our window) So I wonder if it would really be fair to crate him in the room. Right now he is in the living room by a window and a tv.

    But when we crate him, he sleeps anyway and we don't crate him for long.

    I keep my other puppy crated in the dining room, over in a corner. It is still a very open space and he is right next to the window also. I try not to keep the window up very wide since this is Alaska...hehe. But I wouldn't see why it would be a problem to put the kennel(crate) in the bedroom where it's a little dark. As long as he is getting fresh air, and feels somewhat comfortable. The reason I keep mine in the dining room is so that he can see that he isn't left alone, he can always see us if we are home, he knows that he isn't alone. I don't know if I helped you or not, but I really wish you good luck in finding a suitable space. [​IMG]

    We keep our crate in the family room. Kira goes in it when we go away and when I go to work. Since I don't work during the summer she isn't in it very much. And since she thinks she is part human she sleeps with me (husband works midnights). She doesn't hog the blankets, but she sure does take most of my pillow.

    Ruby's crate is in the family room and we have a plastic runner specially cut from her crate to the sliding glass door to protect the carpet (especially good during rainy times). It's in the middle of the house and there's lots of windows for fresh air.

    We keep our wire crates in the living room. I put quilts on the top to make them look better but leave the sides open for air. At night they sleep in our bedroom with a baby gate over the doorway to keep them from wandering around.

    Markus' crate was always in the bedroom. I covered it with a blanket to make it nice and cozy and den like.

    Bru and Amayas crates are in the living room. Our trainer said to keep the crate out of the bedroom but I know other people that say that works best.

    The crates for Bronte and Ttakas are in our laundry room. They are seldom crated now and I've taken the doors off so they come and go as they please. It's cooler in the basement and quite often they spend the day sleeping in their crates. When they were younger and were being initiated to crating, we had them in the living room - they are pretty large and with two of them they took up alot of space, so were moved down to the laundry room.
