Good travel crate for brittany?

Postby dougan » Tue Jun 10, 2014 2:33 pm

Hello,

My brittany is a puppy but I'm pretty sure he is going to be pretty large for a brittany. I am expecting around 45 lb based on his current size and his line.

I have a wire crate but I'm also looking for a plastic travel crate to fit in my SUV. All the travel crates I can find seem to be sized like 15-35lb and the next size is 35-70lb, so I would be stuck with a plastic crate that could fit a malamute and fill up my whole car!

Has anyone here found a plastic travel crate that's appropriately sized for brittanies?

We use regular plastic crates when traveling. I use the size recommended by ABR in the new adopter packet - Brittanys usually use a #300, or Intermediate, size crate (about 23" high.)

Sounds like your Brittany has some fun times in his future. :D

In the car, my boy uses a 30" plastic crate. Yeah, it's a little short for him, he can't stretch out, but it fits best in the car and he has room in there.

If you want a really solid, safe crate, and are willing to shell out the bucks for it, I highly recommend the Ruff Tough Kennels in the Intermediate size.

More economical - look for a Midwest or Petmate kennel that's either 30" or 36" deep.

Ignore the weight specifications on the kennels. You want to look at the length, height, and width. You want the dog to have enough room to stand up, turn around, and lay down. They don't need more room than that.
