|To be honest, I would just let them use crates for the rest of their lives. I know it sounds horrible, but we probably will. The boys dont have to go their crates during the day, but at night while we're asleep they do. Manny has been having seizures that were triggered by his dreams and he would wake up and scream and run to get water and knock his water bowl over all the while the siezures were getting worse. We decided that he will always just sleep in his crate, and he hasnt had a seizure in the night since.
I know it doesnt sound nice, but it sounds like your pack is used to their crates and they love them, so they probably dont mind being their crates. I know what you mean about the space thing though, but our crates have become a permanent piece of furniture in the house, haha! We use the top of them to house all of the doggie things they need to like leashes, collars, and bowls. Good Luck!
