hi im looking into crates at the moment. is there a particular kind thats better or will any do.
What size would be right for a pup. I'm hoping to allow the dog out of the crate altogether when he's trained, so i dont really want a huge one.

Again thanks for the advice. You guys will be sick of me soon with all these questions:eek: allyx

Ive brought a 30" savic crate but i feel maybe a 36" one would be better as the 30" does look small.

Think everyone else on here has brought a 36" crate.

We suggest a 36" crate is best.

We have bought and recommended a top quality steel crate with side and front doors from:

Dog Health
Unit 3
Tower Meadow
Swaffham
Norwich PE37 7LT

Tel: 01760 726340

The part number is - GY0708004-SP

I think they do it delivered for under £40.

Though crates can be bought from any Pet food place such as "Pets At Home" etc etc .....but try and buy the best quality you can (would suggest to budget anything between £30-£40) -
I would also suggest find one with a side and front door !).

Obviously I would suggest going for the 36" model (93cm x 57.5cm x 65cm) as it would mean only buying one crate that would last a life-time. By all means get a smaller one first - but watch to see when a bigger one is needed.

I have a 36" one and I halved it with boxes when she was little. You can buy dividers, but nappy boxes were a perfect size and I had lots of those available for when she chewed through them.

For the extra info - try using the "search" bar on the lefthand side to read the threads on "Tropiclean" for bathing - and perhaps "Orijen" for food (though you'll find Helen (Dylansmum) is best to ask detailed advise on feeding and foods.

I got the 30" crate, but wish I'd got the 36" one now. Think we should have called Poppy Digby - not sure if she is ever going to stop growing! :eek:
