thanks heaps for posting daisydoo!
So no water or toilet area?
I think Honey will be able to hold on
during the night, but I think I am going
to buy puppy pads tomorrow anyway
also her pen is on tiles, so accidents
wont matter.

Daisydoo what a cute little cover you have in there. She looks so tiny lol!

I don't crate my girls at all. Never have had to or ever wanted to. My cousins chihuahua has a crate set up similar to Daisydoos....

Nope no toilet area she's old enough to hold during the night and if she needs to go then she can wake me up. I don't use pee pads the garden is the toilet.. thats in my bedroom!! Lotus is crated at meal times and was when i went out but shes not got free run of the house.. she'll go into Daisy's crate soon

And yes Raches looks lovely.. im jealous

Mom of 4 holy cow! Talk about Chi luxury!

I used to have something similar (only for 1) I had a thin slip cover around back and top, a cozy bed. No potty though.

I don't do crates anymore, much to my disliking, but Gretel has been a wreck. I think after Godric gets neutered i'll try to crate them together, as I have a big enough crate and they're finally starting to cuddle.

Lisa (Mom of 4 Chis),

Wow! I love your crate set up for your chis. They are beautiful and look so comfortable, like a 5 star pet hotel. :)

Dahlia has a huge 48" x 36" crate that she has her peepad in.
She was missing the pad and eating the finish off the wood floor
so we moved it into her crate and she has learned to go there.
She is totally kitchen trained.It bothers me that the floor is smooth
with her knees like they are.Ive heard that its not good for them.
But I rent a fully carpeted house and this is the only way that works
if she is to stay with us.Im hoping we have our own house someday
but I doubt we will.
We took the flip open top off the crate and use it for a doorway gate.
My hubby added a plank to the side of my desk to make it more narrow.
He hooked the top to the side of the plank and we now have a swing open gate!!
I use a grabber stick to clean her crate and change the peepads thru the top.
Im going to wrap a quilt around her crate for winter time.

She owns the kitchen!


Our crate top gate!

She is all set up and cozy!! I know she loves her sock monkey too:)
Can you put a runner rug or large throw rugs on the floor...This is what I did cause we have wood floors too in some areas of the house. I also put pee-pads UNDER the throw rugs just in case the girls have an accident and that way it does not go thru onto the wood floor. and the throw rugs I can easily wash.
It really helps on those slippery floors:)

Dahlia loves blankets and rugs.......to pee on!
I could try it but I know whe has selective amnesia
when it comes to potty training.In her case less is more!
I will try it though with pee pads underneath.
I have some native amer runners that are quite large.
Ill try it and update after I do!
