I guess the best size would be based on the use of the crate. Since you pup will be growing very quickly, it should be large enough to fit him at full size. Also you may want to consider getting one with a divider or you can make your own. With such a large crate for a puppy, he might thinks its a two room apartment without having a divider. If he has too much room, he might use one side for sleeping and the other side as a bathroom. Great for potty training.

As they grow, the divider can be adjusted to make sure he has enough room to lie down. My girl is 14 months and we still crate her at times and she see her crate as her room. When she is tired, she goes in her crate on her own, its like her room. She is still crated through out the night, but is out most of the day, since so one is allways home during the day.

BTW, Welcome to the forum.
