Mya needs a crate..(sizing)

Postby bully_mama » Mon Mar 11, 2013 3:18 am

I've finally come to my wits end with Mya and decided that she needs to be crate trained. ASAP. But, I'm not sure what size to get her. She's only between 12-13 weeks, but she's already larger than Loki was at that age, so I'm not sure how big she's going to be. I know most crates come with a divider.
Would a large or extra large crate be a safe bet?

I like a 42" crate for pit bull sized dogs. That's wire though, I don't have the plastic kind.

I would go with the large or extra large as long as it has a divider. That way she can grow into it and you shouldn't need a new one in 6 months.

Thanks guys, sorry for the delay.

Do the plastic ones even come with a divider? And I think we're going with wire cause plastic probably wouldn't withstand her chewing. And from experience with Loki (my escape artist) it'll be a Kong Kennel. Unless anyone has any suggestions on a sturdier brand?

And a little off topic, but still about crates... Do airlines allow you to fly your dog in wire kennels or do they have to be the plastic ones?
