I currently use pine shavings in my kennel, i love it.
I'm looking to try something new for my travel crates, I have rubber matting in the crates but wanted to add some shavings to keep the smell fresh and add some absorbtion in the event of puppy car sickness, or pee, etc. Has anyone used cedar shavings, any pros/cons? Is it toxic to dogs the way it is to other animals?
Reason I dont want to use pine is the obvious, dont want them to associate the pine shavings with "oh does this mean i CAN go potty in here?" (as its used for the kennels that they can go potty in) Or do you think it would even matter?
Any info would be great!

A GSD bitch that I sold, became horribly ill when her owner bought a cedar filled pillow. Dog lost hair by the bushel full and lost weight. Took time for her to recover from this awful allergic reaction. Vet said an allegic reaction to cedar is not uncommon.
Don't know if there is any correlation here but we have chickens. Cannot use cedar as it will result in death.
