Gwen had a soft crate on top of the wire crate. Bena went into the wire, Gwen into the soft. Most nights when we crate Bena, Gwen will jump up onto the wire crate and lay down. She also loves to sleep on the back of the couch. She's a very vertical dog.

Teagan is kennelled trained and actually likes her kennel, but it's put away in the garage, unless we are traveling. Teagan always sleeps on the bed with us at night.

Panzer sleeps in his kennel at night in our bedroom. He gets to come up on the bed for naps or sometime for the whole night during the week. The top of his kennel is used for storing stuff so there will be no jumping ontop of it.

Mine don't choose to crate, they crate fine when I ask and they will dive in and out in the dog room hoping I am feeding them but otherwise they have dog beds, the couch, and our bed.

Arnold and Tucker used to seek crates though.

Feist hasn't figured out the magic of sleeping on top of a crate yet, only under the crate mat. She loves her crate, goodness knows why since I really haven't made it a magical sparkle place or anything.

I like to dog

Logan's crate has the mouse enclosure, light box, and other assorted stuff on top of it, so on top is not an option. He actually sleeps on the raised dog bed next it, or sometimes in bed with me. Gavroche ALWAYS sleep in bed with me.

I'm considering putting the raised bed IN the crate, since Gavroche doesn't get crated anymore and is on my bed all the time, and Logan hasn't tried to eat the raised bed (yet).

During the day both of mine choose the dog beds on the floor and if it's hot Baxter chooses the tiled floor and wraps himself around the vent so the air conditioning blows on him. Around 10 every night Rocky will ask to go upstairs (we have a gate on the stairs since his knee surgery) and he'll go upstairs, run into his crate and grumble for you to close the crate door.

Neither of mine have ever chosen to go on top of the crates. I don't think they even know that the top of the crates exist.

Cam and Duncan have free access to their crates, but neither one of them would dare sleep on top of it! For one thing, I tend to store/place things on top of their crates, Duncan is a giant and I don't think the crate could support him.

You should definitely call your dog Snoopy.

Nola's crate is a wire one, and she only sleeps inside it when it's really hot out and I get restless at night.

I stack my crates, and they argue over who gets to be in the top one. When I had a spot above the crates at my old place, they always wanted to be up there (the JRTs)
