I just don't have the temperament to crate. I wish I could.

Crate can be an awesome training tool and are by far the safest way to travel with them.

Doing as much competition as we do with them (conformation, field trials, agility an d some times obedience and rally) crate training is a necessity

Ears absolutely loves her crate, but it does amaze me how much flack I have taken from people since getting her that we put her in the crate at night instead of letting her sleep in the bed with us and letting her run all over the house when we are gone. Heck I am thankful we did Crate train her from day one cause yesterday when she had her reaction to her shots and I needed a safe secure place for her to be so I could monitor her she was cool with napping in the crate all day and waiting for her medications to wear off. If done right I do not see the issue with Crates and really do not understand why those of us that choose to use them receive so much flack for it.

Hey everyone, new here. I have crated and not crated. I have found that crated means that there is less damage to the dog and to your belongings. My ex didn't crate one lab...and I insisted on crating the second lab. Because the first lab decided that she wanted to chew everything up in site...we just got a basset hound about a month ago. After the first night of her whining in the crate, we haven't heard a peep from her...we can even come downstairs for a drink of water, and she won't do anything. However by 6:00 am she is done and ready to get out. The only night I ever had to stay with her is when she had surgery done to her eyes (she had cherry eyes) and she was spayed...evidently she doesn't respond well to anesthesia. Because she is a hound, I don't want her getting hurt, I choose to crate.

Also, something that many haven't thought of...if God forbid my house were to catch on fire, I KNOW where my dog is, I can find her and get to her and get her out...if she's out free, that's one more thing I have to find (she'd probably be hiding under a bed).

I have a notice, from Ebay, alongside my front door alerting the Services to the fact there are hounds inside the house. It's a pic. of a Basset saying 'I live here'. I think it's worth having, in the event of fire (or other disaster).
