madis We're getting one from Walmart. 78$ for an XL. Might not be amazing quality but it has good reviews on chewy.com

endless5 I just got this one from amazon:

Amazon.com: Petmate Sky Kennel for Pets from 70 to 90-Pound, Light Gray: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Petmate Sky Kennel for Pets from 70 to 90-Pound, Light Gray: Pet Supplies


Saw a similar one on elitek9 but it was over $200 in shipping...more expensive than the actual crate!

This is the one I got for Cruz. Very good kennel. Would also recommend.

Curtis I'll second the vari kennel. I picked up a used 48" one on Craigslist for $50.

David Winners I second the recommendation for the Vari Kennel. They are pretty tough. They are standard for military dogs. I put a piece of livestock matting cut to fit in the bottom.

Most GSDs will fit fine in the large, but the giant leaves more room to maneuver, especially for a bigger dog.

In need of a new large cage!

So my GSD has managed to take off the latches, bend, escape, and completely destroy his last cage over the past year. He completely ruined it last week. The cage he did this to was Puppy Crate » Top Paw™ Double Door Dog Crates | PetSmart.

I'm not a fan of these metal crates anymore and I'm in need of a good cage for under $200 that I can purchase online.
I got him Petmate Navigator Kennel - Carriers - Cat - PetSmart two days ago (Size 36.1 X 23.3 X 26.7, only size available at the store and online apparently) but he didn't have any room to lay down in and turn on his sides.

He just turned 1 year old recently and I'm in need of a cage for him fast.
What do you guys recommend I should get him?

I was thinking of getting him something like an exorcise pen (what I was thinking of getting) but a friend thinks he'll just knock it down when he's bored...
