Some of us feel that crates are seat belts for animals. Some dogs are crate raised and love their secure homes and travel better in crates. They never used the sofa anyway. I no longer have animals - can't face the rainbow bridge again - but if I did, they would be crated just as the others were. To each their own. JMHO
OP - nice job! What do you show? Certainly not Chihuahuas me thinks... I was partial to Lhasa's. Had others though. Not sure what year I began crating - so long ago - but they all took to it in a heartbeat. When we looked around and couldn't find them - always in their crate. Lhasa's may have had run of palace, but they loved their crates.
