what size crate should I get
So I need a crate for Meiko so that when he's full grown he'll be able to stand up and turn around and everything. What size should I be looking at. What dimensions.

This is the one I got for my GSD as a puppy. I have been able to use it from the time he was 8 weeks till now due to it having a adjustable divider. Cafall is now 26" at the shoulder and weighs about 70lbs. He fits comfortably in this crate.

How much do you intend to use it? I like a 48 inch crate for around the house as it is very spacious but I use a smaller one for transport. How big will he be?

Im going to use it for the house. Not really transporting. It's going to be a wire crate btw.

I assume that's Meiko in your avatar...what an adorable puppy! I clicked on your profile hoping to see more pictures of that little guy. Soooo cute!

Anyway, to answer your question. I suggest getting the 48" crate and blocking half of if off for now.

Get the 48" one, just in case. I bought a 38" and he's outgrown it.

I got the wire one too based on his adult size. It comes with a removable piece so that you can use less space while the dog is still small if you're potty training. I like mine very much. They come in sizes based on predicted adult size and weight.

I'm worried about the height size. So he can stand up and stretch his legs. What size should I be looking at.

48" would be fine. My one year old is 30" at the withers and has lots of room to stretch and move around.
