My dog, Malarky, had major surgery last month and needed to be on cage rest plus wear a cone when I couldn’t watch her. So she’d be more comfortable while I was at work I pulled out a crate that used to belong to my Lab and set her up in that.
When my 5 year old niece came over she thought it was the best. I had moved Malarky to a puppy playpen and my niece kept herself occupied playing in the crate. She even asked me if she could take the crate home when Malarky was done with it!
