I'd try the pallets under the crates. Or if this is just a seasonal thing cause it happens to be raining a lot right now maybe you can just substitute some towels for the bed. I go and buy towel in mass quantities from the thrift stores for really cheap and use them in the dog crates once I have bleached them. This way you could change the towels out daily so the mold wouldn't be a problem.

Yeah, pallets sound like the answer. Plus, when you're done with them you can have a bitchin' bonfire.

You can make those raised beds with PVC, some screws and canvas. I saw plans for them somewhere, I'll see if I can find them again. Until then, the pallets are probably your best bet.

Thanks for the link! We ended up re-arranging the dogs' room and putting 2x4s under the crates -- couldn't get enough smaller pallets and our neighbor was doing some remodelling, so we got the 2x4s for free! Problem fixed.
Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

Hey, if you're ever in the central CT area hit me up. I know plenty of places where you can score some standard sized pallets. Oodles of them, usually free... just sitting on the end of the shipping run. With a sign. Take me, I'm free. Oddly, never can find a use for them...lol
