Cedarwood floors - ok for Havs?

I am posting this for Triona since she is not able to post new threads for some mysterious reason.

Triona has just had new unfinished cedarwood flooring put in her bedroom walk-in closet. She keeps Bess and Snugs' crates in there and they sleep in there at night with the closet door open. They seem to like going in there and don't have a problem with it. But, Triona is wondering if there is any problem with having them sleep in there at night. Does anyone know if there are any problems with cedarwood and Havanese?

I am not sure about flooring...but I know I have seen dog beds with cedar shavings inside as well as natural flea and tick repellents that have cedar oil in them. Both are designed for direct contact with the dog-- So my guess is that it is ok and a brilliant idea triona.

Thanks Missy,

The pups like the closet, it is cozy and now it smells woodsy.

And I bet they come out of the closet smelling fresh as a walk in the woods without all the dirt collected on their coats.

I bet as long as they don't chew on the cedar it should be OK
