Since Spice has come to live at the house I've gotten lots of practice with crate repair. She has chewed up several crate mats and busted her way out of multiple crates. She busted out of a Dog Digs brand bag crate while we were staying with Mom - unraveling a large corner of the mesh fabric on the crate front. After trying various options I resorted to taping - my first tape repair. We will see how it holds up.
