We should be getting our puppy around January 28th so now that Christmas is over i need to start buying some puppy stuff. Just wondering what type of crate most people get and if there are pros or cons to either type. The 2 types i'm familar with are the metal ones and plastic ones. The metal ones are what i've seen most and they look easier to clean, but i'm not familar with the plastic ones so maybe those are easy to clean as well.

the meetle ones are easier to travle with or store when not in use as they take up less space.

the down fall the plastic is that if you have a bad chewer they can chwe through the plastic.

We bought the 36" metal two-door crate from www.doghealth.co.uk (although we got it slightly cheaper on Amazon!). This was the one recommended by breeders Jukee Doodles. We wanted to be able to have a puppy pad in half of the crate so it was ideal for this and thankfully puppy pad has hardly been needed. It is the perfect size for them to grow into so saves you having to buy two. It is approx £29.

I have just switched from plastic to metal...we went bigger so Lady had even more space..now she has a condo all to herself...lol.
They make really fab covers for the metal ones to to blend in to the decor better, they even make tables to go around them

I ended up being given a 30 inch metal one for free from a neighbour! She only used it for 4 months and then decided to just leave her dog out of it. I know 36 inches would have been better, but this was free and is plenty big enough to get us started.

Amanda I saw some covers at the petstore and i looked on etsy. I think i might order one because I'm really disliking the big metal thing in my living room!

30" will be fine for a long time not to worry at all! I moved to a 36" because lady likes to stretch out. oooo I didn't think to look on Etsy! off to do some shopping now as I need a cover!
