Too small kennel = Awesome habitat!

I posted a couple weeks ago about Yogi's crate being too small. I just made it into an awesome enclosure. 2 hours + channel locks + screwdriver + pliers + crate = THIS!!! Before and after!!! What do you think?

Nice, but uhm, I hope you aren't too concerned about those curtains. Puppies are notorious for sticking their paws out and pulling things in and shredding them.

They call them German Shepherds

The only thing I'm concerned about is him jumping over. What do you think?

He'll be like a kid climbing out of a crib! Great idea, though!

When my dog was smaller than that I put her in a room and blocked off the door. I blocked it from the floor to about 4 feet. I came home and she was out of the room and all of the stuff was exactly as I had left it.

I would be shocked if that held your dog for very long at all.

Ditto GSD- 6 years old
Daisy Alaskan Husky- 4 years old
Weegee Toy Poodle- 2 years old

Always loved, missed, and remembered:
