What is the best size/type of crate/kennel for an adult Cavalier?

Thanks,
Jennifer

One that is 24 inches long should be sufficient. I have the Midwest brand one like you can find on amazon.com. I also use the plastic removable 'replacement tray' that you can buy for $30. It's been a lifesaver for sophie's two big UTI accidents in the crate.

The Clipper 2 is the generally recommended size for an adult. But once dogs are housetrained, I think a larger crate is more comfortable for them if there;s any plan to actually leave the dog for any period alone in a crate. Some people like plastic, others like wire crates as the main home crate. I have a range of sizes and types. I like the wire crates as they fold flat and the plastic for transport.
