    Since our Husky had an unexpected litter of 3 pups fathered by our Belgian Malinois the wife decided some cages were in order to minimize the chances of that happening again.

    Her design all the way; I think they came out looking pretty good (just need a final coat of paint) and are pretty large with floor space about 5 1/2' X 5 1/2' for each of the three cages.

    I'm not a huge fan of caging dogs but short of getting them fixed (not in the plan) this seems to be a decent option.

    It looks good and the dogs don't suffer in the cage as long they don't live there 24/7. I have an advice for you, maybe you already know it, but when the dogs lay on the concrete the often get wounds on their elbows. To avoid that I put a yoga mat in the cage. I'm not sure of the right name in English but it's also used on a boat deck so you can walk around without its smooth. You need glove it to the floor in the cage, or it will be in many pieces if the dog feels boring. Your dogs look great

    Our dogs will never be in a cage 24/7...the cages are for when one of our females goes into heat and then it will be a rotation between the female and male to keep them apart. When a dog does need to be in the cage it will not be treated like it is a punishment or something and will make sure they are comfortable...all our dogs have been exploring the cages as they've been built and seem to find them interesting. Plus, they are pretty big as cages go.

    We have 2 female Belgian Malinois who both have had a litter this year, so they will not be bred again until next year. The Husky's pups were totally a surprise; beautiful little pups but the plan is for her to be bred next year to another pure breed Husky with PCCI paperwork...or the wife's plans as this is her little op.

    They final coat of paint is on...the wife went with a silver colored paint, I think the cages came out pretty good.

    I don't know.
    Where did you have this made? How much did you pay for everything?

    It was a couple local workers we've used previously, work was done on site, I honestly do not remember how much it cost as we also had other work going on and did not really pay attention.

    I am not an expert of course on mixed breed, had only twice a real Malinois male in Europe, but the pups looks more like a Malinois than an Husky.

    The mixed dogs are going on 2 years old now; the owner of one sent the wife a picture of his dog about a month ago and he looked like a lighter colored Belgian Malinois. Turned out to be nice looking dogs with good temperament.
