    Both would probably fit in the wire crate Argos carry (if they are reliably happy to be together in such close confines) -- I can check the size for you. Problem with a babygate is, if you have kids, you don't have much privacy then!

    It may be easier to train them to the kitchen where they can have a bed or crate them in the kitchen. Easier to ignore the barking/whining that may happen initially if they are in the kitchen. Cover the crate totally with a dark sheet though and that should help -- then they don't have any visual stimulation.

    Mine all are fine in crates when they are boarded. They accept that fine as an alternative. Every now and then I consider crating them all at night so I have room to stretch out.

    Default UPDATE!



    Just to thank everyone for all their suggestions regarding the problem my other half was having with dog hair getting everywhere, the best suggestion came from Mic...see here

      They can be stubborn at times, and try to pass it off as being dense. Don't fall for it!
      Don't forget plenty of praise when things are going well.

    I'm sure that in a couple of weeks you will have your husband trained.
    And I have to say it's working...training of Other Half is going great as you can see from these pics, we got him hoovering, even they guys are pleased and he even got a little reward (kiss) from Max .

    Don't give up ladies, perseverance really does pay off.

    Now thats brilliant.

    Think we should all take mic's advice.

    Fortunatly for us Lola has slept in the dining room in her crate from day one and isnt allowed upsatirs either.

    I have a babygate on the stairs too,the main reason i dont want Lola upsatairs is because there are too many small things that she will get hold of up there in the childrens rooms. I like her where i can keep an eye on her


    Touch wood she has never cried at night and seems happy downstairs.

    LOL.....Lily was a lot harder to train than my hubby. The younger they are the easier they are to train
