Do you allow your dogs to sleep in each others crates or do you keep them to their own crate so it is their and theirs only?

That's so strange, I was going to ask the same question!

I have a problem with the cats at times sleeping in Cody's big crate but usually they prefer the sofa.

Daisy is very good and 9/10 times will go in her own crate. If she is in Cody's I will tell her to get out.

Cody seems to love Daisy's crate and will try to sqush himself in it with her but I always make him get out.

I am trying hard to keep them to their own crates since the agression issues as I think they need to have their own space, not a shared one but it is quite hard.

We keep them totally seperate as their very own, I never allow them in the other ones crate so it is their own special place.

Have to say I had to read that twice and have come to the conclusion that is an Irish statement - hmmm.

Every dog that comes here seems to like Kassi's crate, but I shoo them out as she loves her crate and it is her haven, she does not bury anything in it or have anything special in there, but they all seem to like it better so perhaps she gives off a nice aura in there.

Raffi in particular likes to go in there and have a look but while he is small Kassi hops in there with him and keeps an eye on any re-modelling he may start doing.

I have one crate and it's mostly Eddi that uses it if he wants to be left alone with a toy, Daisy doesn't bother with it.

It is in our lounge, they are never shut in it, it's just a place for Eddi to chill out in.

I also would never allow Rocco into Diesels crate and vice versa - I also dont allow them to eat from one antohers bowl either xx

I find they know its their own space - and to be honest now I think about it - they only go in their own crates xx

On a night though they do sleep in our room and happily snuggle together in one cosy dog bed xx

They have their own and I keep it that way, I don't let Elsdon in Ruby's crate. He will go in and have a nosy and she doesn't bother but I feel it is her space so I keep it that way. Ruby never bothers with Elsdon's - maybe he has sweaty feet spinner smile

I only have crates for the pups and they go in what ever one they want to, i activly encourage my dogs to share everything so that there is no attitude over anything.

Same goes for toys and food. My dogs are all fed at the same time they finish in the order Dylan, Indi, Charlie , Piper and then Bree. My older dogs all swap dishes once they have finished their food and when Piper finishes she also checks out the other empty dishes. I am always present at feeding times.

Chews and toys are also shared and no one toy belongs to any one dog

I won't say thins works for every household but for mine i can say yes it does

I am totally with you on this. I only had puppy crates but both boys shared a crate when they were younger. Haven't used crates in house for them since they were about a year old. All 3 of mine roam free in the house when I am not in. Mine all share chews and toys and clean each others dishes when they are finished.

My sister has a new pup and when we are all visiting my folks house my 3 all disappear into the pups canvas crate (which was an old crate of theirs). Quite funny really seeing the 3 of them cuddled into each other inside it.

Do they all roam free in the house together when you are not in?

Yes they do roam free and are no problem. I actually have difficulty in separating mine. When Polar was hospitalised when he was in crisis, Rudy became ill with IBS type symptoms they think caused by the stress of his brother not being at home.

Ah bless, they are very close.

I used to allow Jack and Chloe to stay at home together when we were out, even when we were at work and never had any worries at all.

However with Reuben and Chloe we have always seperated them. Although she is the boss he can become a bit much and she will snap at him to tell him enough is enough and he always backs down but he is a lot younger than her and she needs some peace and quiet so she goes to bed upstairs when we are out and Reuben has the run of the house

Is a crate a cage? I had one massive cage that I used since the pups were born and then all three dogs slept in it at night, they didn't have their own seperate ones.
