Standard German Spitz - Popular sizes of dog crates, playpens and beds.
Find which size of dog crate, dog cage, pen and bed you need for a Standard German Spitz Dog .
Please follow the links below to see the popular sizes for your breed.
These are based on our experience over many years, but sizes do vary within any breed. When selecting a crate, the dog should be able to stand erect without needing to bend its legs. The minimum height for the breed should therefore be taken to be the height to the withers. Please check this if you are in any doubt.
