View Full Version : Crate size

13th August 2008, 08:24 PM
Hi all, I posted this with my photos but thought I would ask here too! I think our puppy crate is a bit small for him now and we are getting a new one this weekend. Any idea of good size? This one measures H38 W39 D59 cm. He is only in it when he naps during the day and at night. He seems to love it though and always trots into in when he is feeling sleepy or has a nice treat! He will be 14 weeks this weekend and he weighs 4.6kg and measures 24 cm at the shoulder.

Both my dogs have 24" crates as their beds.
My 2yr old Lucie is quite a sturdy dog and is above breed standard for height and weight.She is around 9kilos and 14"tall.
My 12 week old puppy Sasha is 2.6 kilos and very dainty.
I ordered 24" crates as thats what size i was recommended from the vet and crate companies.
Mine are not in all day (as i dont work and when i go out I take them with me or have someone watch them) in them and are able to stand up and turn around in them.
My 2 love their crates....its a place where they are never bothered by the kids!!!! A safe haven for them!
