How to pick the right size kennel for your dog
When it comes to kennels, size matters. Whether you select a plastic or a wire kennel, if it’s too small, your dog will not be comfortable. On the other hand, if the kennel is too large, house training may not be effective, as your pet may go to the bathroom on one side and sleep on the other. To properly size your dog for a kennel, measure him from the top of his head to the floor and from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail. The height of the kennel should be 1-2 inches taller than your pet when they are standing and sitting down, and there should only be enough room for your pet to stand up, turn around, sit and lie down.

According to the latest airline regulations, this is not airline approved now due to having no vents on the back section. I used mine for home crating so that didn't pertain to me, but it may to you. You can drill holes yourself, but risk splitting the plastic, although it is durable. It came with 2 water/food bowls which attach to the door.
If using this for airline travel, of course, this size crate will go into the cargo area, it should only be used for larger dogs, you don't want too much space or there could be a lot of jossling around during turbulence. If you are using this for crating overnight at home, this would not be for a large dog. In fact, if you stuffed a large German Shepherd sized dog in this for overnight crating, that would be darn cruel, the poor dog wouldn't have room to stand up or turn around. If home crating either overnight or while at work, I wouldn't put a dog much larger than 20 lbs. in this crate.
I use it for overnight crating of my dog, it's her den/cave - I prefer this type crate to the wire see-through type for this very reason. Dogs like their dens. My dog doesn't think it's torture at all to go in this at night, and she gets a good night's sleep and doesn't have to worry about a cat jumping on her just for meanness.
It's easy to clean too, I just pull it outdoors to the patio and hose it. Petmate also makes mats that fit inside perfectly.
WARNING: There is one thing you have to be concerned about when crating your dog. Make sure your dog's collar and/or tags can't get caught in any openings or the door of the crate, especially if it's a small dog. It might be a freak accident, but a small dog that is jumping around could possibly hang itself if the collar or tags would happen to "catch" on something.
Because my dog is not a Great Dane, I wondered at first if I shouldn't get a 40-42" crate instead but I read some people's comments that those crates were a little cramped for their dogs of a similar size to what I expect mine to grow to. Since my dog has already learned not to soil his crate in the smaller one and this will be his crate for maturity, I don't regret possibly erring on the larger size.
These plastic dog crates, when they're the appropriate size, are great for housebreaking a puppy. By "housebreaking" I mean not only training them to soil outside only but also to keep them out of the trouble they would get into if they had free run of the house, and to teach them calmness and a lower level of activity is expected indoors. It gives them a safe, private space that is free of stress when they need to eat or rest.Read more ›
