Shop for Crates
We recommend the wire crates only! Goldendoodles are thick coated dogs and get hot in the plastic closed in crates. We use them to teach crate training starting at 3 weeks old but once they go home at 8 weeks they should be in a wire crate. You can purchase a crate at any pet store.
Crates We Use and Recommend
We recommend and use the Precision crates that come with a divider. Precision crates have a thick plastic bottom that doesn't crack. We have used Mid West Crates at Moss Creek and the crate bottoms cracked after a few months. It's over 50.00 to buy a replacement bottom. We have tried every crate and some are really cheap, the doors don't close properly, they have thin wire or exposed sharp wire, etc. It pays to buy a quality crate that comes with a divider so you can use it when the puppy is small and as an adult.
What Size Crate Do I Need?
If you are adopting a standard puppy, we recommend the 48 inch crate. If you are adopting a medium sized puppy, the 36 or 42 inch crate. A small sized puppy, the 36 inch crate. They come with 2 doors if needed.
