Hey everyone ... I was just wondering what your thoughts would be on this ...

Mocha and Beldin so far have been used to sleeping in a section of the kitchen that we closed off for them. (Ever since they outgrew their puppy crate)

They have always been together right from birth pretty much (yes they're from the same litter).

The only times they have been seperated for any long period of time has been when Mocha's in heat. ((I am planning on getting both dogs "fixed" pretty much as soon as we get into the new house, within that same month)).

Anyhow, the new place has a different layout and I wouldn't be able to just section off a part of the kitchen like I did here, so I was thinking it'd be a good idea to get "the twins" (as they're called around here) used to a crate again.

So what my question is ... in your oppinion, should I get them each a seperate crate? - Or should I get one big enough for the both of them since they're used to being together?

I can see pros and cons for either solution, but I wanted to know what you all thought?

Thanks much!

Thank you, Mike. :)

Unfortunately I'm on a fairly scrict budget at the moment and I can't afford two large crates... it's gotta be two small or one large - that'll be about the same price - but two large is beyond what I can afford right now, hence my dilema.

But thank you for your advice :)

Check www.craigslist.com for dog crates.  You may find two of the larger size for less money.  I checked and there is a list available for Vancouver, BC.  I'm not sure how far away you are from the city proper, but it is worth a try!  Good luck.
Thanks for the link! :)

Unfortunately for me, getting to Vancouver would be a chore - I live on the island and right now ferry prices are atrocious and shipping wouldn't be very inexpensive either.

... I think we found a solution though at least for now.

I got one larger crate that the both of them fit very nicely in and both Mocha and Beldin took to it right away with very little fuss at all! They seem to actually really like it!

I figure the one crate will do for now while they're still young and actually like being together.

I'll be getting them spayed/neutered within the next few weeks so long before Mocha's next heat.

Also that'll give me some time to save up again and maybe get another larger crate later on just in case the need should arise.

Thank you all for your advise and comments though, I appreciate it! :D
