That is the size crate we got for Donner. Hes a 75lber and he still has plenty of room. Its probably smart to get the big one first and let him grow into it. You can use a divider in the meantime to make it a little bit smaller.  :emtthumbs:

We have an XL cage for Daphne or Attila depends on who gains enough respect to stay out of the cage and have free roam of the kitchen area.

Better to be too big than too small..Mine has a divider and 3 doors, I think it's the same size actually...The divider is great cos you can put it wherever you like as they grow....

I heard the smaller the better.  Granted they need to fit in there, but its like in the wild they will find the smallest den that they can just about squeeze into to sleep b/c the smaller it is makes them feel more secure.

I use the 36"L x 24"W x 27"H for my two girls.  This crate is recommended for dogs weighing between 41-71 pounds.  They come with a divider to make the area smaller for a puppy and you can move the divider as the puppy grows.  The maximum size crate I would get would be the 42"L x 28"W x 31"H.  That's for dogs weighing 71-90 pounds.

we got one that is 48L x 30w x 33H. WAAAAAAAY too big.
I have the same size.  I think its a good size once they are full grown.  It should have a divider with it to help with housebreaking a pup.. if you didn't get one you can probably find one online. ;)

We have the XL 107cm one.

But thats for the two poodles to share, zulu doesnt get crated, he goes absolutly ape shit if you try and confine him. :roll:
When we lived in africa we used to have a garden service co at our housing complex, and when they came while we were at work, because zulu chased the mowers and strimmers, he used to go inside the house, untill he chewed all the wooden window frames and hubby went crazy. .  :lol:  :oops:

So then, caus we had a huuuuge yard they didnt have a kennel, we got them a childs wooden wendy house with a deck and shelter, it was soooo cool, so they put him in there and he headbutted the window out 8O
So needless to say the grass only got cut on the weekends from there so we could keep a watch on the lil monster :D

We have a plastic travel crate.  It is in two peices, you just bolt the top to the bottom, then add the door.  I don't remember the size, but it is for 70 - 90 pound doggies. :wink:

We went with the XL one as well.  The divider wall worked great when we first got him because it limited his space and made it less likely he'd have accidents.  After 2 weeks of no accidents we took out the divider and have given him free roam of the entire crate which is HUGE for his size, but because he is in there for 4-5 hour stints 4 days a week we felt better giving him some extra room and he seems to like it.  We also have a travel crate, the plastic kind which we bought a size smaller to travel with when we take him with us for extended periods.  He likes this one as well, we set it up in the living room for a week before we went away for the first time and threw toys and treats in there on occasion and he began to like it equally so we had no problems on our trip.  He likes his crate and when he gets tired that's where he goes to nap or just get away from the fuss of the day.
