Question For those of you who use crates,where in the house are they?

I have mine on a chair next to my bed.But now since Duncan is growing I am getting a little anxious about leaving the crate on the chair since I am a little concerned that he may knock it off the chair.My next step is to put the crate on the floor near the bed so he can still see/hear us and he's still in the same room with us.What do you all think??

Smarty's crate has been on the floor in my bedroom from from the beginning. She spent the last 3 nights in bed with me at the motel. I may have to forget the night time crate.

Brady has a crate in our den where he stays when we go out and also he eats in. He goes in there sometimes at night too when we are watching TV. Brady used to have a crate in our bedroom, but he now sleeps in bed with us or in his bed next to us on the floor. When we had the crate in the room, I kept in on top of a card table next to me in bed. I found this to be a bit sturdier than a chair.

Like you, Sam spent his first few weeks in his crate on a chair. He started rocking the chair so I put his crate on the floor with no problems.

I started out having Oreo in his crate on my nighttable. Then, I moved it on the floor of my bedroom. As he got older, and began tossing and turning more and more. I am a light sleeper and I found myself focusing on Oreo and his movements, as opposed to sleeping. So we moved Oreo into the laundry room right on our main floor. He sleeps nicely and I have to wake him up in the mornings for our walk

I just got Rufus home, but I had him in the crate right next to the bed on a small table. He slept soundly right through the night! Then we also went to work together today where I had an ex-pen set up and took his crate too, but he was happier sleeping or cuddling in his Sherpa bag!

We never did put Ricky's crate up at bed level because it was big and we didn't think we had to. He whimpered the very first time, but some 'ssshhing' on our part and he did fine. He hasn't slept in his crate in our room in 5 months, since he was 6 months old. It's been in the kitchen since then and hasn't budged.

Sammy's crate has always been facing Ricky's in the same room, one on each side.
