The crate should be large enough for your pet to lie down comfortably and also turn around with ease. If you are buying a crate for a puppy, try to buy one for the size he/she will grow to fit, rather than the size they are now.

Dogs will misbehave at times, and it is a matter of how and when you catch them or react that matters most.

Is using a dog crate cruel?

Dogs in the wild need a safe haven and they usually seek out a place where they can call their own. If a domestic dog has no particular place to hide it will usually go under a table or stairs to shelter itself. So no using a dog crate is not cruel and it is a great way to house train your pet.
