Metal and Wire Dog Crates
As a pet parent, one of the first purchases you will likely make is a dog crate. The reason is simple—they offer your canine a cozy retreat that’s convenient. In addition to providing your pooch with a space of their own, dog crates can also serve a number of other useful purposes. A dog crate can be used to help house train a new dog, protect your home and your pup while you’re away, or provide a convenient option for traveling in a vehicle. Dog crates typically come in two distinct options: wire and plastic. Wire and metal dog crate sizes range from X-Small, for a max weight of 20 lbs., all the way up to XX-Large, for 90 lbs.+. While it’s good to know your dog’s weight, you can also reference our crate sizing guide to get a better idea of which size works for each breed.
