Ok we have two dogs and our getting another boxer puppy in about 15 days . Duke is a 1 year old boxer and we have our 3 year old lab mix. She doesn't need to be crated but we have crated her because we didn't want Duke to get lonely (they are crated separtely but are right next to each other) since we are getting this new puppy I wanted to buy a new crate with my income tax money. Until then I figured it would be no big deal to leave Tabs (our lab mix) out and crate the puppy in her crate. I honestly don't see the reason to keep crating her if we have another puppy to keep Duke company during the day (Duke has to be crated). All Tabs does is sleep, she's not distructive at all. Do you think this will cause problems with Duke? Adam is worried that they will hurt themselves trying to get out of their crates to be with Tabs. We can shut the door to where their crates are if nessasary I just don't think it will be a problem and would like to know what you guys think. I am pretty sure I remember some people saying they crate one but not the other.
