Dog Cage/Crate Size Guide
This Guide will give you a good idea of which of our dog cages will suit your dog.
It is important that you buy the correct size cage for your dog. A dog cage that is too big may cause problems. If the cage is too big, dogs ( especially puppies ) may use part of their cage space as a toilet.
Your dog cage should be high enough for your dog to stand fully on all fours. The cage should also be long enough and wide enough so that there is enough space for your dog to turn around.
If you are buying a cage for puppy training then you should bear in mind that your little dog will grow and grow. Don´t make the mistake of buying a dog cage that will not grow with your puppy. Instead you should buy a suitable dog cage and a dog cage divider. This will allow you to increase the size of the dog cage as your puppy grows.
If you transport your dog using your car then you should definitely consider using a dog cage for transport. You and your dog will be safer when using a cage. We supply a range of dog cages that include models designed for hatchback and estate cars. So there really is no excuse not to buy a dog cage for travel.
Please remember that a cage should NOT be used to contain your dog for eight hours whilst you are at work. If you need to contain your dog safely whilst you are out of the home for long periods of time then a suitable dog kennel arrangement in your garden should be introduced. Make sure your dog has plenty of toys to keep them occupied as they will get bored and possibly become a nuisance to your neighbours. You can normally find someone locally that will walk your dog during the day for a small fee.
This guide can be used to buy the correct size cage for your dog. However within dog breeds there will always be some variation in size. Some dogs will be larger that average and some smaller so please use your judgement when purchasing a dog cage.
