If you still aren’t sure which plastic dog kennels are right for you, consider the source and shop accordingly. What do you need the crate for? If you are attempting to crate train your pet the best size is the smallest possible that will provide enough room for rest and food/water only. This is because the small space encourages pets to retain from urinating in their sleeping space. Larger crates make this job a bit harder.
If you are going for sheer comfort a larger crate is a great choice, however, keep in mind that some dogs prefer small cozy spaces for security reasons. If you still aren’t sure which plastic dog kennels might be a good fit for you consult your vet. They are always quick to recommend the best pet products on the market.
