Hard Plastic or Soft Side Crate?
I don,t know whether to buy a hard plastic crate or a soft sided crate? I am getting a tiny Yorkie and I like the soft sided crates,but I am afraid she could chew through it or get the zipper down. What are your experiences?

With the softside, because it's so light I would be afraid that the dog might be able to tip it over if he/she pushes on one side, I don't know if this could happen, it's just something I wonder about.
I've always used hardsided crates and never had a problem.

I use both. I already had a soft and a hard crate. Cozy does not seem to perfer on over the other. I use the soft crate if I will be gone for greater than 2 hrs. so that she has more room and the hard one trips in the car at least for now.

Are metal ones an option? they don't smell funny, can't chew through them, can't 'undo' the zipper, and you can make them soo comfy!
