Measuring Your Dog For A Dog Crate – Don’t Forget Your Dog’s Height & Other Body Measurements!

Weight is only one indicator of the type and size of dog crate you should get.

What you really need to do is make sure your dog will comfortably fit inside the inside dimensions of the crate.

Measure the height, width and nose the tail measurements of your dog – and compare them to the interior dimensions of the crate provided (you should be able to find this in the product description for each size of crate)

Also, make sure your dog will have enough room to stand up, turn around and lie down in the crate based on these dimensions.

Additionally, make sure there is enough room in the crate to put a dog bed or pad in there if you need to – so you may want to measure your dog’s bed or pad too.
