Choosing the proper size dog crate for your dog should involve a number of considerations. Depending on the gender and the possibility of mixed ancestry, your dog may need a dog crate that is larger or smaller than listed. This list is provided to help you choose the proper size dog crate for your adult dog. Please consult your pet professional for additional guidance.

When selecting the proper crate for your pet, his size is more important than his weight. A pet should have a crate 6" longer than his body length and 6" higher than his shoulder height for maximum comfort.
