Brand: Precision Pet
Here's a folding 2 door dog crate for everyday use that won't cost you an arm and a leg. It's built to last and it looks good too! The doors secure with unique slider latches. You can see the door in action if you'd like. Another handy feature is the unique pan release mechanism. The black plastic pan stays put which makes it nearly impossible for your dog to slide the pan out. The crate folds easily into a flat, suitcase-type package with a comfortable carrying handle. Includes a Puppy Divider Panel with every crate. We don't recommend this crate for dogs who are escape artists. No crate will hold a strong dog who wants to get out. A truly crate trained dog will be happy in any crate. Due to manufacturing variances, the sizes listed are not exact. We don't recommend purchasing one of these crates if the space it must fit has less than an inch of tolerance all the way around.
What size crate do I need?
This really depends on how you plan to use your crate. If you are planning to move your crate often, then the smaller the better.
Start by getting a tape measure. If you don't have one, use a piece of string and a ruler. Use the string for the measurements and then use a ruler to measure your starting and ending points on the string.
First measure your dog from the floor to the top of the shoulders. Now add two or three inches. That is the shortest crate you should consider.
Now measure from the tip of the nose to the back of legs. Add two or three inches and you'll have a good idea of the smallest crate you can use.
If you want to use your crate mostly as a kennel for your dog, get one with plenty of room to lay down or move about. Measure from the top of the head to the floor and from the tip of the nose to the back-end. Now add as much space on top and behind as you'd like so your dog will have room to comfortably move about and sleep.
If you can't measure your dog, then use this table for a general idea. But remember, a dog's weight isn't necessarily a good indication of their body size. Measuring is the best way to determine crate size.
