I hope you saw my post! I took your advice, Blanketback!!!

SummerGSDLover No bed post. Lol. The room idea isn't working out because he keeps climbing over us when we're sleeping. My husband works 5am-5pm so ... Yeah. I'm going to repurpose his crate tomorrow so I've got the weekend. Also the weekend I'm having the "sucky fairy" come to my three year olds room to take all his pacifiers away. *grin* It's going to be a long weekend. I've got a cat that hates him up in my room also to contend with so I'm going to have to figure something out. Thanks ladies!

wyoung2153 Why isn't the room an option? Just curious..

the baby gate idea a good one. Or if you are worried about roaming and can't gate off an area.. there's always the leash to the bed post idea.. doesn't have anywhere to go but down to sleep

Blanketback No prob I am a reuser, not a recycler, lol. Those old crate panels really come in handy - I have one against my sliding screen door, for example. I hope my bed idea works for you - good luck!

Ooooh, good idea! I bet I could take it apart and use it as a barrier. Great idea! Thanks!

Jax08 So look for a used one on craigslist. They are there and cheap. Minimum of 42"

SummerGSDLover I would If it weren't totally mangled. The thing is held together with carrabeaners and zip ties.

Jax08 Sell your old crate on craigslist and buy a larger one from there. I bought a 48" for $60 in very good condition.

8 month old needs another sleeping arrangement option

Please help. My GSD has outgrown his kennel. I don't have the funds to buy him a bigger one right now and I've tried having him sleep with me and the hubs - not an option. He's 8 months. Please don't think I'm irresponsible. We've had some medical issues pop up and after Yogi's $1500 medical scare, I simply don't have any extra money at the moment. I thought about putting him in the bathroom but am concerned he'll chew and this is a rental. What other options are there? (feel free to get creative).
