When we first got Nico at 9 weeks, he slept on the floor of our bedroom in a plastic crate (Petmate Kennel Cab, medium size). He liked his crate from the very beginning. He cried a bit at night the first few days, but we didn't want him sleeping in our bed, so he stayed in the crate. When we got Desi (when Nico and Desi were 5 months old), he came to us with a wire crate (Midwest Lifestyles 24x18), and he had been sleeping in his crate in the kitchen at his old house. We took that opportunity to move Nico down to sleep in the kitchen as well, and got him a wire crate like Desi's and put the two crates next to each other so the pups could see each other. They both love their crates and happily sleep in them every night. When I say "crate" at night, they make a dash for their crates. The mad dash might be related to the biscuit they get every night when they go into their crates, of course. Size-wise, Nico could still easily sleep in his plastic crate. He's nearly 10 months old and weighs about 10 pounds. Desi is 15 pounds and he could sleep in the plastic crate also, but he wouldn't have as much room.
