    Default Finally a crate mat Buddy likes

    bud cratepad.jpgFor years we have searched for something that will:
    stay in place when Buds flies into his crate.
    Is soft and cushy.
    He likes and won't shove into a corner.
    Going on 3 days and it hasn't slipped with his hard charging, he hasn't tossed it into a corner, and he really likes it.
    This is the dog that while the others sun themselves on the grassy hill this time of year he instead opts for the hard and rough diving board.
    It only took 8 years to find something he likes!
    What is it you may ask?
    A non slip backed fully machine washable and dryable thick memory foam bath mat I found at Kmart and bought on a what the heck lets give it a try whim.
    I'm going back tommorow to get one for Piper(the old man) in a dark color as he is constantly napping in Buds crate now when Buds is outside rather than the dogs beds or the couch.

    I bought mine at Costco for $14. For a long trip to a trial I'll put two in each box.

    I got tired of replacing the expensive dog crate mats something about vinyl being wadded up when its cold out, always ended up in the garbage. Started using army surplus wool blankets, of course hair sticks to them like a magnet. Thinking im gonna go see if I can find some of these up here in the far north, no Kmart anymore but we still have a Costco.

    Try Big Lots. They usually have them in two sizes. Sometimes colors are limited but.........
