Which kind of kennel/crate/cage thingy for a tiny dog?

Sorry I can't make these dang things clicky.


This would be for at home, like overnight or when we're all out.

  • Is the dog housebroken? The reason I ask is because the most important part of crate training is to get a kennel that the dog doesn't have too much room in. A dog won't piss or poop where has to sleep, but it will have no qualms about going to the opposite end of a big kennel and relieving itself.

    Basically, you want a place the dog feels comfortable, so never put it in the crate as a punishment. You'll find that the dog will go there on its own when it needs some peace and quiet.

  • She's not yet - she's 8 weeks old today. I won't be getting anything for a while, just curious what would be better.
