The ideal size is getting your dog current height and choose crates that is just enough for him to eat and sleep. Consider only the place for the water and bowl, right space for him stand up, turn around and curly. Too small is very uncomfortable while too big gives him space to potty at one side and sleep on other side and he will develop that uncontrollable potty if this happens. There are available adjustable dog crates to accommodate different size of a pup as he grows up.
  2. Correct accessories. At first, use only ordinary rugs or used clothes on crates for new dogs or pups as they are still on teething and chewing stages. Refrain from purchasing expensive dog beds as it will not last for chewy dogs. Also for additional comfort, you may provide dog crate cover to let him feel more private and distracted from outside noise and busy environment.
  3. Time for Crates. At first few weeks, let your dog in the crate for several short times of a day and not too long, just around 1-2 hours. He needs to play, get socialized, time for potty outside and other activities he should enjoy. You can only leave him at crate when you are about to go outside for long time such as work, make sure to provide fresh water and chewable toys such as rawbones or gnaw toys that would make him busy inside for long hours that also promote good health such as teeth cleaning gnaw toys.
  4. Do not on Crates. Aside for extra space, refrain from leaving any harmful or any object that could hurt your dog. Make sure the bowls are attached permanently, remove any collar or leash that could entangle or could stuck your dog and get hurt.
