I voted "wire crate" but we have used both. Currently Scout is in a wire kennel and Emma has a plastic crate. Emma LOVES her "cave" and goes in there when the toddlers (furry and human) are too loud. Scout likes the wire one because she feels less shut out and more involved.
Of course, all our dogs prefer the couch as long as no one is home to catch her...

|jocoyn||Thing about the 48 inch one, You can go in easily on your hands and knees to clean it. I like it a lot better for in home use.|

|Cassidy's Mom||I have a plastic Vari Kennel for the car. It's the 36 x 25 x 27 one, which is fine for Halo, who is only about 57 pounds. Both dogs sleep in Vari Kennels at home, but they have the larger size. Keefer is 80 pounds, and Dena used the other one before we got Halo - she was around 72 pounds.|

I use wire and plastic, but for travel I prefer the plastic.
My dogs are good in crates, so the destructive factor doesn't play into it. Wire is nicer for air flow.

40.5″ x 29.5″ x 30.5″
most people are saying to go with 48"
would 8" make that big of a difference? or is 40.5 ok?
i do like the idea of hand clip top for easy cleaning. better then having to unbolt a bunch of screws on each side.
but my Companion's luxury is more important then mine. so if i need to get one with bolts as long as its 48" then i will get the bolted style.
what do you all think?
if it makes a difference i want to get a female pup. so they tend to stay a little smaller in size.

we have 1 of each too. Picked up the 48in wire crate that a friend was getting rid of for 40 bucks, was a steal.
My dog prefers the plastic crate. It's more denlike. I like the plastic one better too. Its not so noisy when she's adjusting around in there, and I don't have to worry about paws getting caught etc

|pyratemom||I actually have two 48" hard plastic crates - 1 for sleeping inside and 1 for the car. I also have a folding crate for shows and traveling to other people's houses.|
