Choosing Dog Crates (Buying tips)

Size: Choose a dog crate in a size appropriate for your dog. Its length should be one-and-half times the length of your dog when full grown. Your dog should be able to stand up, lie down, and turn around comfortably inside it.

Airline and railway compliance: If you intend to travel by air or rail with your dog, choose a molded plastic dog crate that complies to the requirements of most airlines or railway systems.
