    Thanks for the tips. One thing, I wish u showed us the kennels with the dogs in them, so I could visualize what the appropriate size looks like!

  18. Crates are horrific! There is absolutely NO reason that you need to put your dog in a crate! None! If you ever get to a point where you start to think that you need to buy a cage for your animal, you should not be owning one. There is always behavioral training, and new technology that has made traveling with your pets a breeze! There is no need whatsoever to put your dog or cat in a cage!It is sick
