I am thinking about getting a soft crate to contain Gunner in the car on rides to the park, vet, etc. We went today and he did good just siting on the seat, he wasn't walking all over, probably because he doesn't really like the car. Anyway I really want him contained especially since he is getting more used to the car and may become more comfortable moving around. I was thinking of getting one of the crates that are fabric/mesh to keep in the car as it's a pain to move his big wire crate everytime we go to the park. Any recommendations positive or negative comments on specific brands? Also any suggestions as far as size? He weighs just over 20 pounds at 4 months old. He's a lab/hound (beagle???? I actually had someone tell me he looked like he had some beagle in him when I just told them he was a lab mix) The shelter said he could reach 60 pounds (the lady made it sound like that would be the max), first visit to vet estimated 70 pounds but I don't think he'll be really big. So do you think 36" is a good size or would I need 42"? I would like to use the crate as his regular crate when he is finnished with the chewing phase (if that ever happens! hehe) Thanks, Sara P.S. Today we had a pretty good day, Gunner didn't attack as much as usual and I was able to stop him sooner! YAY! We walked a mile at the park, fetched some tennis balls in the yard, and had a training session. I think he does better when he has more exercise; I guess we'll just have to run 5 miles everyday! Haha, I'm definitely not a runner.
