I just sent you a message right before I saw this post...too funny!

Anyway same here, Blitz cried her head off in the plastic crate for 5 nights in a row so I let her (gasp) sleep in my bed for the next few weeks while I ordered her a wire crate, I thought there was no way she would go for it after being in my bed but much to my suprize she loves it...never a peep! I think she likes having a better view but also I don't think the plastic ones have enough air flow and she feels cooler in the wire crate.

Your story with the four night screaming in plastic and then quiet in wire is EXACTLY how it went for us.even when I pulled the door of the plastic crate right next to my bed so she could see me was not working, I really think the plastic crates get too hot, being all closed in with body heat and all that fur. We went right to a 42" wire at 15 weeks and she never had a accident in it but some of them do come with a divider if you want to make it smaller for now without having to buy 2 crates while your pup is growing
