Crate Sizes

Hello all!!

I have a question for everyone. What size crates do you use for your dogs?
Right now, ours are in 24Lx18W....when we send our babies to their new homes(which will be quite a few weeks yet, but we want to be prepared!!) we are going to send them all home with new crates....Im just debating on a size to get. I want something they will be able to use the rest of their lives so I want it to be big enough for them to be comfotable in as adults, yet I know our 24Lx18W may be kind of big. I may end up going with that size, but what sizes do you guys ues?

btw, I use wire crates because we fold them down and take them to dog shows, but I have not yet decided if I am sending home wire creats or vari kennel type crates....

We have the same size as you do and it came with, or I ordered, a divider so you can make the crate smaller until the pup needs the whole thing. It still folds down for travel and is only about 3 or 4 inches high when it's folded up. I ordered them from Petedge, they're the ProSelect model.

I also use the 24 X 18. For the pups I use the divider until they need more room.
