Re: Travel crate size for 9 week old?
Hi Hoops, congrats on your new puppy, and welcome to the board! I would use as small a crate as possible for the pup. You might even end up just using towels or blankets and let them rest in the back seat or in your lap. Be sure the pup doesnt eat before you take it in the car, lots of pups get car sick and will throw up in the car. Make sure to stop frequently to let him/her relieve themself, but be careful where you let them relieve because if other dogs have used the area, your pup could be at risk for canine diseases, remember your pup hasnt had its shots yet.
