The divider is optional for those with growing puppies, if you don't need it, just don't put it in. It comes as a separate piece.

yes you can use without a divider. The divider is used if you want a smaller space for one dog or to divide the cage into 2 cages.

I put a snoozy in the bottom of the crate and it was a little snug, but the divider did go in. I actually preferred that the divider was snug because I didn't want my puppy to be able to pull it apart and get stuck under it. So that actually worked out well.

Get a crate to fit the adult dog. Look for a crate with a moveable divider that will partition the crate according to the needs of the growing dog. The divider is to prevent the young pup from using the empty part of the crate as a bathroom area.

No. I have a beagle mix - about 25 lb.s. I think it's just right for him. I use the same size that you are asking about. It's okay to give your dog a little extra room to stretch his legs. I don't like for animals to be overly confined.

Question

How is the quality?

I ordered this crate three years ago for my beagle puppy and I was extremely pleased with it. It was heavy and sturdy. Now I am planning on adding a second dog to my home and I need another one.

At Petco a couple weeks ago, I saw these crates (I think they were the same ones, but maybe I am wrong), and they appeared to be made out of a flimsier material. Does anyone know if they have changed what they use to make these crates? Are they still heavy and sturdy, or do they feel like they will knock right over?

Personally, I would get the size crate that you will want when she is full grown. Each crate comes with a divider that can be moved to allow for larger areas, and eventually you won't need the divider. I wish I had done that, because I have a beautiful crate that is now too small for my 1 year old puppy.

The recommended crate size for a boxer is a 42" crate. You will need to utilize the divider panel so that he has just enough room to lay down and turn around, then move the divider back as the puppy grows.

2'x3'x27" tall for dogs from 41-70 lbs. If your dalmatian can stand up with head up in the crate and lay down from nose to tail, it's big enough.

It should fold over after collapsing the shorter sides. It then will collapse on itself with short sides in (providing you unhook the small clips) and the fold down the longer sides (after the short sides are in and the clips on the longer sides are undone). It will fold into a wide book and then close in again. Good luck.

The reverse way you set it up. Unhook the ends and fold them down, then lean the cage to one side (like a suitcase) and put one side down all the way, then fold the other over it. Hook the latch to that last panel to hold it down.

It is a bit of a challenge. You will have to unhook some hooks around the sides and should open like a book and then square sides next. They were harder and needed a screw driver so as not to break a nail. The clips were stiff and then the short sides will fold open and then re-clip them into position.

Labs come in different sizes is your lab full grown or puppy. Typically the 700 series crates are good and if you get one with a puppy panel you can always accomadate the size to match waht you have. We have a growing puppy have the puppy panel and actually use the "unused portion" to keep extra blankets, beds pillows won't work for a dog that likes to pull stuff through the crate though. Crate training is really great and makes bad dogs better behaved dogs and good dogs great dogs. I have had dogs with and without crates and will always have a crate now!

You're going to need to measure your dog from nose to hind end. The purchase a crate a couple of inches longer than your dog so he can move around and adjust his position. If he is already house trained you can go even larger.
