Question Where does you pup sleep at night?

Duncan is still in his crate at night,but I'm thinking it's too small since when he stretches his body out there isn't really any room left.He's gotten so big so fast.
Oh,BTW,any good sites for reasonably priced crates???
Thanks in advance!
Dot

Milo, after spending the first two nights in a crate (till I awoke for the fourth time because I was worried about him, not because he was barking) found his way into my bed and has been there ever since. He's a pleasure because he doesn't disturb me in any way and he doesn't get off during the night. When I awake in the morning he gets up, he's never up before me.

As for crates, the pet shop where I purchased mine recommended the 30" size. My own thought was to get the 24. He was right of course. PetEdge.com probably has some of the best prices. I paid much more.

Nico sleeps in his crate. The only thing that changes is the location of the crate - sometimes it's in my room, sometimes it is in my middle daughter's room, and sometimes it is in my oldest daughter's room. My youngest daughter sleeps like the dead and wouldn't hear him in the morning, so he doesn't sleep in her room.

The two places I do most of my online puppy shopping are dog.com and petedge.com. I haven't priced crates, though, since I already had one. I know kennelvet.com had a good all in price/shipping charge for ex pens, so maybe their crate deals are decent also.

Brutus sleeps in our bed; Roxie in her crate, but it a large one now. We bought the big crate off of craig's list for $5. Used but perfect condition. We just put a new crate pad in it for her.

Mine sleep in the bed with us..I got my crate at Walmart..I liked the option of two doors, one on the end and one on the side. We've only used it inside the expen with both doors open....I think it was around $35 but I'm not sure about that..

Baloo sleeps in a crate next to my bed on the nightstand. I believe it is a medium size crate. He also has a wire crate that we use downstairs for his naps/alone time.

I agree petedge and dog.com has some of the best prices.

Gucci sleeps in my bed and has never seen the inside of her crate! lol

I think I bought mine at Petsmart for around $50 or so? It looks like a cage.

But I've seen some really COOL looking crates and crate furniture scattered around on these threads lately! I would post the links, but I don't remember which threads they are on.

Allison slept in her crate for 14 months and then suddenly decided she hated it. She now sleeps on our bed. She is a pleasure. Never bothers us and HATES to get up in the morning !! She grumbles at me when I try to get her up !! A real lazy girl !!

Quincy sleeps in his plastic-type travel crate in the kitchen.This is the same crate he flew in on the plane.

Sometimes the Dollar store has this type of crate....

Dreamer & Tripp sleep in their ex-pen & Jax sleeps in a crate next to our bed. He never wants anything to do with the crate during the day to nap etc, but when its bedtime & he is tired(at night only) he will run to the crate for us to let him in.
I have not let dogs sleep in our bed since my one dog (many years ago) jumped off the bed in the middle of the night & broke his leg. He screamed so loud. I dont want to trust them to use steps. Plus my DH does not like the idea of pets in bed(especially since we have 3).

Tripp, Jax, & Dreamer
