Is a medium crate too big for a puppy? Smaller crates help puppies relax and feel safe. They can feel scared and lonely with too much room and it may take them a long time to settle down. There is another big reason a puppy’s crate should be the proper size.
Can a dog be in a cage for 8 hours? How long is it okay to leave a dog in a crate? Adult dogs shouldn’t be left in crates for more than 6-8 hours. Puppies of 17 weeks and older can handle up to 4 or 5 hours in a crate at a time. Leaving a dog home alone in a crate longer than this can hurt their mental and physical health.
How big should a crate be compared to a dog? A good way to determine the correct size is to measure your dog’s height when standing (top of the dog’s head to the floor) and length (tip of the dog’s nose to the base of its tail). Then, add 4 inches to the dog’s measurements to determine the best dog crate size.
