If it were me, rather than crate them, I'd build a good kennel. They'd have more room, be in the fresh air. They'd be secure and fulfill the penned up requirement, when you are gone.
Just go easy on those cute pits, I remember your pictures of them with the kids...those look like classic buddies to me. Good luck.Paula Valentine said:Woody,
You crack me up, sometimes i would like to do more then crate my husband. my dogs live in the house all day and night with the family. they will only be crated while i am not home for more then a few hours.
