Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Crates

What size crate should I get?

Get a crate that’s big enough to allow your dog to stand up and turn around inside it. A good rule of thumb is to measure the dog's length from nose to tail and his height from paws to torso, and then add 3-5 inches to get the ideal crate height and length dimensions. All the crates on have sizing charts to help you pick the perfect one.

Where should I put my dog crate?

Put your dog crate near where you and other family members will be while the dog is crated. Since many dogs sleep in their crates at night, the bedroom is a popular location for a crate. You can move the crate to a living room or family room area during the day, too.

What should I put in my dog's crate?

Put a dog mat, crate liner or blanket in your dog’s crate to make it feel cozier, or choose one of the cushion-style dog beds that fit in crates for even more comfort and warmth. Putting a few dog toys in the crate can help your pup feel more at ease, too.
