For those pups who find safe havens in their crates, it helps to have a comfy cushion to come onto. North, who rests inside one during the day, prefers to drag his crate pad out as soon as I come home and bring it next to me in the living room . . . which means I need to put it back myself every time I leave. I'm thinking of upgrading with an investment in a heavy-duty version like these beautiful Luxury Dog Crate Mattresses ($60) instead of my current lightweight counterpart. Do you pamper a pet by placing a product like this inside his crate?
