JayFoxFire We have Extra large crate for our 2 years old GSD. Maybe you should get that online for a cheap price. Its good to have crates in handy. We always use it whenever we go out.

carmspack XXL Midwest Dog Crates | 54 inch Crate | Giant Dog Crates for a Great Dane, Mastiff, Saint Bernard and More!

for the larger sizes you have to order them , they wouldn't be held in stock as inventory , not enough demand

Dainerra I'm getting a 36" varikennel for my car. tried on out at practice and he fits nicely.

selzer I use 48s for the boys, and 42s for the girls when I use crates at all. Right now I have a boy in a 4'x4' x-pen with a lid, that has three sides so that he can go through the doggy door to a kennel outside.

They, all of them, can fit in a 36" travel carrier, rather comfortably. They are more square than a crate though, and the dogs just fold themselves up and go to sleep.

I never considered a crate or x-pen from e-bay. Will definitely check them out the next time I am looking for something.

Dainerra I got my 48" crate from ebay for $45 and free shipping.
When the pan warped in my basement, they sent a new one

He seems to really like it as long as the blanket is on top but he can't stretch all the way out. I always feel bad in the morning because he stretches and it makes me wonder if I should try to find a bigger one online. Thoughts please!


Crate dimensions are 42 long x 28.5 wide x 30.5 tall.
I think you should give your dog more big room,then it can feel better

BillWas2 Yep, this sounds all too familiar. I, too, purchased the largest model available at Pets Mart and it worked fine until Qanuk reached about 75 pounds (he's now around 86 pounds). Now it's really too small for him but as I'm retired and we're living in rural south central Alaska I take him almost everywhere I go so he really only uses it when he sleeps. It is too small and he'll spend some time in it but he also spends as much or more time in my bed or on the carpeting.

Just went to Home Depot. THANK YOU for that suggestion. They have great crates that are huge! Now I just need to budget for it! Again, thanks! Great idea!
