    Shelby is my little love.

    Anyway...Shano, do these answers help? One of the reasons I posted the pics is to show you that although Jake is bigger than Shelby he is equally as comfortable in his crate as Shelby is. Also that they are very content in their crates.

    I bought crate covers from here

    I also cover their pads with a king size pillow case. Makes it really easy to pull off and toss in the wash. Here's a pic of my two in their crates:



    They both love their crates and go very happily into them at night time.
    Cathy, what size did you get for them?

    Unfortunately the crate has a warning that it is not recommended for puppies or chewers. It is lovely though, maybe for an adult cav!

    Didn't think about that! Thanks Cathy, good point. I started out with Jake's toys in a wicker basket but he was much more interested in eating the wicker than playing with the toys

    I think I'm definitely going to go with the crate that Cathy has. Looks nice and that's awesome that you can get crate covers! I'll be getting the khaki covers for sure!

    Thanks so much for all of your help!

    I really like these crates. I made it into a really cozy place when they were babies. Neither of mine had problems with weeing in their crates so I was able to stuff blankets in there and a small pillow so it was very cozy and soft. I know others have not put "stuff" in there because of weeing problems. We did have an x-pen around it on top of a linoleum floor laid on top of some heavy duty plywood as a floor and that was where they hung out if I had to leave the room during house training.

    The other thing I really like about these crates is that they are very sturdy. You don't have to worry about them collapsing or the pins coming loose.

    We actually use the double door pet stages as our end tables in our sitting rooms...we found black trays at pottery barn and my husband attached them to the tops of the crate. They make perfect "tables" in our casual TV room...many don't even notice that they are dog crates until out babes walk in them to get out of the way.

    Katy was quite a barker intermittantly at night in her crate. She had a nice soft cushy pillow, snuggle pup and crateware cover but.....it was not until I put a nice cuddly nest bed inside the crate along with the blanky and pup that she is now quiet all night. The crate just was too big for her I think. Never had an accident and now sleeps til dawn. She curls up and goes right to sleep...only need the earplugs on the weekend now when I want to sleep in.....until 6:45 am instead of 6:00am.
