    S/O on my Crate Training Post

    Advertisements
    Ok, so I know I should start training now. What size kennel/crates should I get for the doggies.

    We've got a Border Collie and a Jack Russel. I've been looking online at like Petsmart and Petco to see if they have any info, but nothing.

    They usually have the weight/size of the dog it can hold on the side of the box the crate is in. That's how I decided on mine.

    Are they puppies? If so, They have crates that have inserts to put in them to block off some of the room, because if there is a lot of room in there, they're most likely to pee/poop in there.



    I found this as well;

    Small: (Vari-Kennel #100 or General Cage #201)

    Toy Poodles, the Maltese, etc., with average weight of 6-10 lbs.




    Medium Small: (Vari-Kennel #200 or General Cage #202/212)

    Mini Schnauzers, Jack Russells, etc., with average weight of 11-20 lbs.




    Medium: (Vari-Kennel #300 or General Cage #203/213)

    Cocker Spaniels, Field Spaniels, small Shelties, etc., with average weight of 21-40 lbs.




    Large: (Vari-Kennel #400 or General Cage #204/214)

    Huskies, large Samoyeds, small Golden Retrievers, etc., with average weight of 41-65 Ibs.



    Very Large: (Vari-Kennel #500 or General Cage #205/215)

    German Shepherds, Alaskan Malamutes, Rottweilers, etc., with average weight of 67-100 lbs.




    Extra Large: (General Cage #206 or Mid-West #89-Z, 89-E or 99)

    Newfoundlands, Great Danes, etc, with average weight of 110 lbs. plus.

    We picked our crate based on what size we think she'll be once shes fully grown. It has a divider we used when she was small.
