    I put vet bed on the bottom, then they have a cheap soft bed and then about 10 blankets for them to bury. Hopefully at crufts i can find a crate cover, and i've just ordered a cot bumper too :rolleyes:
    My mums dog just has vet bed and a soft bed in, hes happy with that, if i put any blankets in he drags them back out

    Sometimes i think their crate looks cosier than my bed, they all spend a lot of time curled up in the crate

    Alfie has a king size duvet folded over twice to make it fit, then on top of that he has a single duvet folded over once and then 2 fleece blankets to go over him at night as our house gets reaaaaally cold. His crate looks more comfortable than my bed :lol:

    This was before I put the king size duvet underneath (for extra squishiness you see :p):

    I have a bedding with rubber grips on the bottom for less slip. It came with the crate. Also theres about 2 cheapish blankets which my mum keeps getting me for christmas every year :lol:
    When we go to my OHs i put a thick fleece in there (it stays in the boot of my car usually) so she has extra warmth as shes downstairs in her crate on her own at night. She usually sleeps in my room, and recently if she gets too cold she'll jump on my bed and curl up next to me :)

    It depends on the dogs that go into the crate. The whippets mostly have pad beds, Willow and Buck have a thick fluffy bed Lily has a bed and a fleece. The iggie pups have fleece throws as they are at the stage when they destuff anything else and Button has a load of shredded newspaper.

    This is because no matter what you give her she will shred we have given her thick padded beds, blankets and duvets all with the same result. Give her a load of shredded newspaper and she settles down straight away and if she does have an accident in her bed it juts goes in the bin and she has fresh. I think whe she was racing they must have used papper for bedding as she just doesn't know what to do with anything else and wont settle.
