Dog crate size

The crate she is in now she is quickly growning out of, its almost to small for her to sit up in. So I need to go buy another but I would like to just buy the size one she will use when shes full grown and just block off some of it. What size should I get her? This is one she will sleep in, and be in if I can not watch her for a hour or 2.

42"(L) x28"(W) x28"(H) I found one that size. Which is champion brand idk if they are any good.

What size should i buy her?

I bought one this size too but didn't block any of it off because she likes the space to stretch out and she's good about holding her pee. I hope it fits mine when she's full grown, but so far it fits her as a puppy with me sitting inside of it on my butt too

I bought two of the Midwest Lifestages Double door, they seem pretty durable and the workmanship seems decent too.

I bought the 42" and 48". Midwest.com has them for the best price, $75 and $95 shipped.

I just bought the 2 door 48" one off Ebay for like $60 shipped.

For the money, I feel it's a good buy.

42" would be the smallest I would buy, 48" would be better and tall if possible due to their ears.
