    Hi everyone! Hope you are doing well!

    My question today is, would it be ok to take my girls out of their run and put them in a big (bottomless) wire dog cage and put them in the grass to play around in?? [​IMG] They absolutely looove grass, but they have never been able to actually be in it! [​IMG]

    I cant let them free range because I have 3 dogs that free range! [​IMG]

    So do you think it would be a good idea? Or not? [​IMG]

    Hi! They will love it, and it isn't too hard to get them back out. I just offer treats to any stragglers that I can't catch and they come running. Have fun!

    Do you have the plastic bottom to that dog crate? Not too hard, just slowly push the bottom piece into it's slot on the crate. They will naturally step over it as you push it in slowly.

    Be sure and offer them some sort of shade so they don't become overheated.

    Enjoy [​IMG]
