Lil Miss Kee doesn't like to be alone and Billy and Luna both tolerate her being with them BUT they all live together, sleep together, and the two younger dogs are very protective of Kee (on the other paw, she DOES drive them nuts upon occasion so we WATCH this very closely).
No amount of money would induce me to crate two dogs who don't live together and who don't have a strong bond/dependance on each other. My point is this -- it's only because we have an extenuating circumstance with Kee that we DO crate together. She HAS a crate and they tend to prefer to be together. It's UNUSUAL.
but boy -- the stress of travel and dogs that may normally *play* together -- nope, I wouldn't touch that one at all. it's asking for trouble.
