Choosing your dog crate / cage - what size do I need?

When you are looking to buy dog crates, getting the right size - the best size for you - is important, and what you need may not be as big as you think.
Your crate becomes your dog's special place, and can be used to create a natural den, as well as a travel aid. If your dog is tired or nervous it can find a safe haven in its crate as it knows that here is a space which is quiet and private. Dog crates are also often used to assist in toilet training.
We do have a very helpful series of blogs dealing with questions about dog crates and cages. These answer such questions as 'Is crating cruel', 'What should I do if my dog needs crate rest?' and 'How long can I leave my dog in a crate?' to name just 3. Please click on the blog link button at the bottom of the page to see the answers.
