  2. Crate training

    Puppy Corner
    Hi, I am getting a new puppy soon, and was wondering at what stage do you start crate training? As soon as they get home (like, would you expect them to sleep in their crate the first night home?), or do you wait until they settle in a bit? If so, where do they sleep until then? Thanks, Kate

    Hi, I am getting a doberman puppy in a few months and was wondering what size crate people would recommend? The one I was looking at was 107cm long, 71cm wide and 76cm high. Would this be large enough for an adult, or would I need a larger size? Thanks!
