Does anybody crate their neo?  I need an indoor option for Mule while I'm at work.  He has an apartment in the garage, complete with queen size bed, radio and fan, but he has chewed through the chain link run part, and I can't keep him there.  He's such a chewer, I don't trust him alone in the house, but I don't have extra space for a dog room.  BTW in case you might think I don't know what I'm doing...I don't Roll Eyes  Mule is my new hubby's dog and we've only all been together a short while.  I'm trying to make everybody comfy and happy and still keep my house unchewed.

I would get the solid plastic crate and give him all his favorite chews in the crate. You should start slow and only leave him in the crate for short periods until he is comfortable in there.

He's about 1.5, 170 pounds and stands taller than my 6'3" husband when he's up on hind legs.  Do they even make crates that big?  And where can I get one?

Yes, they do make crates that big...
Hooves, pressed rawhides, pressed bully sticks are excellent chews to make the "prisoners" happy, LOL

When we got our neo she was just about a month old. We tried crating her, but she just moved everything out of her way... We usually keep her someplace in the house she spends a lot f time in, that she doesn't chew things up....
