Get The Right Crate Size For Your Dog

1 Comment

For new dog owners, the one question you don't think of until later in the process is "what size crate should I get for my dog?".

Okay, okay... so some of you thought of that in the way beginning - kudos to you. For most of us here at The Pet's Tech, it was a thought that came up once we realized a new baby was on its way! Crates should be simple, and for the most part they are. However, if you don't know what size to get it can be a very stressful process. 

We are here to help! Here is a guide that will help everyone! 

New dog owners: here is a guide to help you pick out your first crate! 

Current dog owners: here is a guide to help you make sure the current crate is appropriate for your dog!

Stay bright at night! Our LED Dog Collars keep your dog seen on the road or in the yard at night.
