I agree with Mikey T in regards to crate size. You'll save money in the long run if you get one that will be big enough for their projected size. When Virga got bigger she got the crate that Doppler had outgrown. We got lucky in the fact that my in-laws bought both of the crates that the dogs are in now. But Doppler's crate is 42 in long and Virga's is about 36 or 38 in. I can't remember. But both of them sleep stretched out on their sides so we needed crates with length.
