    Default Crate recommendation

    I'm trying to figure out what crate to get for Bosley for the house. I don't want anything too large or too small. I've seen the ones that my neighbor's have for their Schnauzers and they look to be about the right size. I also want something that will look semi attractive. Thanks!

    I bought a Lifestages crate from Petsmart. It has a black finish and actually looks quite nice in my house. The other crates were either too big or too small. This one is perfect! I believe it cost about $65 dollars.

    I have a couple of different sizes-- small for transporting and medium for longer stays. Nylabone makes a nice crate. Sandy

    I have this "wicker look" crate from PetEdge. We use it for an end table, and the "small" size is plenty big for a cav.

    I love those wicker ones! Had I seen those back when I first started crating I probably would have gotten one.

    Here's the link to the ones I have

    I bought crate covers from here

    I also cover their pads with a king size pillow case. Makes it really easy to pull off and toss in the wash. Here's a pic of my two in their crates:



    They both love their crates and go very happily into them at night time.

    We use the Midwest Double Door crates. They're nice and the double door gives you more options on where to put it in a room. We use the 30x21 but the 24x18 works too. We keep another crate pad on top for the cats to sit on, but I've seen people keep decorative pillows or a table top and use as an end table.

    We also have a folding one similar to this for when we travel:

    I went to www.carealotpets.com and started clicking around at all the crates, and this one has a cav in it! http://www.carealotpets.com/item-detail/?ItemID=1648B

    I have the Lifestages double door crates. I bought one of the larger sizes for India when she had knee surgery. And I have softsided, zippered crates for the car.

    SHANO, are you planning on getting an x-pen, in addition to a crate? They work well for puppies!
