One fear down, 87,000 more fears to go. Looks like Loki's 12 step program got him over his crate fear.
"This is a nice pad, but it's a little cramped for my style. Where will I fit the baby grand piano and the water bed?"
See what I mean about his ears not fitting? Seriously though, airline regulations require a 4" clearance from the top of the head (not the ears) if the dog is standing normally (not hunched like he his here). This crate wouldn't pass airline regulations. Still, we use it to train him and will get him a crate for his size, whether we buy, build or rent one! At school, Loki stays in a canvas crate while I train Juno so he gets used to being in a closed environment in a public location. He totally digs that crate.
