    lola is petite but when fully stretched out in sleep mode she needs the 36" crate that we have its surprising how much room she takes up on the queen bed...we *have* to move her to her own bed when we're about to fall asleep

    If you can see, That's Tonka in a 36" crate at about 5 months and 35lbs. He has more than enough room to lay flat out but he still always smooshes his face against the bars for some reason. The 36" doesn't seem huge for too long! Lol. I totally took the divide out at about 4 to 4.5 months and he was fine. I also have his crate right on top of a vent. I just closed the vent and he's got all sorts of cuddly stuff in his crate. It has never been an issue for us
    It's nice that he has his own little play area where he can be safe while he's alone!

    Now that looks like one spoiled bully! lol

    I guess 36" is what we need. I just don't like the way my room looks with it in here. I may shut one of the vents and sit it there. That's where I had originally envisioned it. If not, I'm sure it will grow on me over time.

    We have a 30" nylon crate (like this) and I definitely think it is too small. You did well to get the 36" one.

    Sancho is only 16 weeks and he can just barely stretch out in the 30". I think we may end up keeping it for travel and get a bigger "every day" one (assuming he will even be able to be comfortable in the 30" when he's full-grown).

    We have three sizes. 36, 40, 48. Gypsy has claimed the 48 even though it was originally bought for our long Basset. She loves it!

    I only crated during the 'potty training', phase and only at night & when we were at work. So we put ours was in the bedroom. That way, he knew when he went in there it is was sleep time. When we were home, the pup was out running around, and I just took him out every 2 hours on a schedule. (I too did not like how the crate was going to be in the main area). ..Now the whole house is their crate.

    My boy has a 42" x 28" crate. It fits absolutely perfectly in a niche in the laundry room, which is the first room we enter when coming home. He had a 32" crate until he was 5 months. He still fits but I wanted him to have more room while I was at work. Once he was completely house broke and no longer teething, I took the door off the crate and gate him in the laundry room during the day so he can have more room, but I don't think he does anything but sleep. We will use the smaller crate if we ever travel with him.

    You won't be sorry with the size if he's going to be crated during the day. We have a 48x30 and for Wilson it's perfect when he was crated during the day. Emma's in it now as Wilson has free range. I give her plenty of room to move and not be cooped up.
