    That crate is so nice my dogs want to book a room there.

      Huey and Brady used to love their crate. I haven’t used it for a long time and it is now packed away in our attic.

    Shotzy loves her crate… She grew out of her puppy crate so we took the door off… It’s in our bedroom and she still loves to snuggle in there… Of course her head and front legs stick out, but she doesn’t care.
    I’ll have to post some Pics on my Facebook.

  3. We just adopted a 1 1/2 year old beagle from the local shelter. She appears to be house trained and makes it through the night. We are trying to decide what to do when we are gone for the day, do we crate or confine to a single room? This is our first dog, so we’re open to suggestions.

    • Ximmi and Kammi said

      My suggestion is leave her out and leave for 30 minutes to an hour, come back see if anything is destroyed, missing, moved, taken out the doggie door. If so you may need to crate for awhile. Kammi my rescue is about the same age she did fine while Xanti was alive but when he died she decided to take anything and everything out a medium sized doggie door (dog pillows, movies off the shelf, king comforter, tried to get the plastic dog bed out the door but it wouldn’t fit) (and this was in a 45 minute time frame) to the back yard and chew it up. I guess he was her calming agent. Ximmi does fine when I leave but now I just crate them both together when I leave. That way I don’t worry about Kammi hurting herself destroying something. Maybe eventually she will handle being left out of the crate, I’ll try again in a few months and see what happens. Good luck and enjoy the beagle experience.

        Shotzy the GS still loves to drag doggie beds, etc, out of the dogs room while we’re at work. I think that’s her stress release

        Sounds like he was running away from home in a huff!!

      Back in the day after my divorce when I rented a room with my mom, we’d leave our pups in the house while we were at work and mom would let them out at lunch.(I was an hour away). But they were older dogs and not beagles.
      Congratulations on your Beagle!!!!
      Good luck and let us know progress…

    If my memory serves me correctly, the good Doctor made the beautiful crates. I took Hoovers crate away We had to get his crate from the attic because we thought we were going to have to exacuate due to the hurricane. I set up the crate and he jumped right into it, He was so happy. Guess we did him a disservice taking it away from him.

    Scooby’s crate is packed away in the basement. But if we bring it out, he is so comfortable going back in. We also leave the door open and he will nap with his head hanging out over the front edge of the crate, resting on the carpet.

    In the second picture (if you can tear your eyes from the cutie pie beagles) you can see the incredibly detailed joinery on the crate. Props to the Captain for some serious woodworking skillz!

    So would you call the Kramer crate mission style? Arts and crafts? Definitely not mid-century modern.

  8. Phil said

    Ie never really been able to figure out the difference between mission and craftsman. All my work is of that ilk. That one is stained popular. The one downstairs is cherry, maple, purple heart and a tiny touch of ebony. The materials are cheap but it think it’s about 20 hours of work per create.

      The crates are beautiful, whether mission or craftsman.
      Perhaps they are the newly discovered “Siding Style”? 🙂
