What size crate do you need for a large dog?

First of all, the crate should be spacious enough so that the dog can sit freely in it, without bending down and not touching the ceiling and to lie down stretching to its full height. Also, it should let the dog change its position and turn around without problems. In other words, the dog should feel convenient in the crate.

Secondly, the crate must be strong and reliable, so the dog won’t be able to get out on its own.

But no matter how good the crate is, it still needs to be selected based on the weight, size, breed, age, and behavior of the dog. A properly selected crate will not only become your reliable assistant, but also a cozy corner for your pet.

That’s why check out the best large dog crate available on the market and choose the one that suits your needs.
