Clean Run - November 2012 - (Page 6)
Because my new, young dog chews all things he can get his teeth on, any kind of mat in his crate was instantly destroyed. Traveling with him in the metal crate without a mat was stressful because he slipped so much. So I bought some commercial 24" x 24" carpet squares from a local discount store. Along a metal yardstick as a straightedge, I was able to use a utility knife to cut the squares to ﬁt exactly in his crate, and then put it in without any adhesive. The carpet has a nonslip underside and is so thin that it lays perfectly ﬂat, and he hasn’t chewed it in the three months since it was installed. It also vacuums well. I am so pleased with this solution that I made one for my other dog’s crate. D
