Question: 
I'm picking up our new puppy on the 6 of Jan. She is a small Min. Schnauzer puppy. I'm wondering what size crate of kennel I should get for her. I don't plan on using it all the time only in evening and when we have to leave alone. Mainly it will be for potty traing.
Answer: 

The size of the crate you should purchase depends on the size of your dog. Your dog is physically comfortable when the crate is tall enough for your dog to stand up to his full height without having to duck his head, wide enough to allow your dog to lie on his side and stretch out, long enough for him to lie down stretched to his full body length without having to curl up. Puppy owners usually purchase crates according to the estimated adult size of the breed. To avoid keeping your puppy in a space that is too large, you can use divider panels.
