    I am looking for a meta crate as Millie has brocken the zip on her fabric one in a week! :rolleyes: The problem is that I find the doors on the metal ones a PITA...they stick out into the room becuase they dont sit flat againist the crate if that makes sense?

    All the ones Ive had and seen metal wise all have two doors, one at the end and one the side and the doors open outwards.

    Just an idea but if you were to take your fabric crate to a camping/caravan shop the might put in a stronger zip

    There is always my 'cupboard' option if you are stuck for space :D.

    The crate we have has doors in both the side and front of it too.

    she cleared the side (paperwork), shredded a kitchen roll and a pad of paper, wee'd in two places on the carpet and was blissfully asleep on the sofa! :lol:

    Ah bless her, the little sod pot. :D it must have been hard work fitting that lot in while you were out no wonder she was tired.

    These crates are a good idea, I used the spare bedroom to contain any damage he might do when we were out. I have to admit he wasn't destructive, although I have made a point of letting hubby know we were very lucky our next dog will be totally different. :D
