There  is no "correct" size for any particular breed, as much depends upon the size and nature of each individual dog, as well as the amount of space you feel is correct.

On this site we have selected the crate, bed and playpen sizes most commonly used for each breed, but remember, the final decision is yours. Some smaller crate sizes may only be suitable for a smaller bitch, whereas the larger sizes may be more suitable to a larger dog.

Your dog should be able to stand with straight legs inside the crate, and to lie down in comfort. If you are in any doubt at all, please ask your breeder who will undoubtedly know your particular requirements, or ask us for further advice.

Select  your breed by clicking on its initial letter to find details of the breed and popular sizes for that breed.
