I use a plastic crate. I bought a larger wire crate and it's still in the box, never has been opened. I freaked myself out thinking about his getting a paw, jaw, etc caught or even mangling it to a degree and escaping. I don't have those worries about my plastic crate. I'm considering using the wire when I remake my son's room into the 'dog room'. I plan to put the crate in the closet if it will fit though with an extra fan. That way there is only one side that there is a possibility of escape ... the front.
