When we are home, they are with us in the house.
When we had one dog and then two puppies, we had this:
The floor is rubber/foam puzzle like tiles.
Then we got one of these when we got Eden. The girl has springs for legs and with all the gate jumper and escape artists on this board I got really nervous. This one is almost 4' tall:
Then even though it was the same size as the white pen, I felt it should be bigger with 3. So, I bought another. Hubby added like 4 of the 8 pieces. I want it bigger. After his race care is finished, our basement will be nearly cleared. I plan on adding the extra panels and making it L shaped with water and potty pad (we use hospital bed pads. The one pictured is 29"x35" so nice and big) on the one end and beds and toys on the other:
Our basement is unfinished but nicely climate controlled and they are in the safest place in the house should there be a tornado when we are not home (we are in the Midwest so it is common). They have a nice big screen TV. They watch Qubo when we are gone. It's educational children's programming after all!! haha!
