We just bought a new wire crate for Yogi since he is outgrowing his first one. What can we use as a divider...something he can't chew through? The crate is 30" tall. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

How big is Yogi?

If he's bigger, would cinder blocks work?

If he's just a baby, how about a piece of cardboard or plywood cut to size?

Or, you could see if you can order a divider either from the retailer you purchased the crate from or online.

ETA: Actually, the cinder blocks would work if he's little too. :)

Cardboard is easy to cut to size and you can secure it with twine. I've heard of people putting carboard boxes in the crate as well.

If he chews, cardboard wouldn't work. Depending on the size of your dog, you could use a metal pan, 2x4s (screwed or nailed together) or a small storage bin (hard plastic)... bricks?

If there is the chance of an accident in the crate.. cardboard gets very soggy :eek:

Just something else to keep in mind.

Yogi is a 15 week old Shih tzu/Bichon/Maltese mix. He is in the chewing phase, so I don't think I want to put cardboard in there. I just emailed the manufacturer and they want to charge me $20 for a divider!
