    Default Dog box height

    Dog box is 20" inside height. Is that enough or not for medium (58lb and 65lb) sized dogs? I frequent hunt test and spend a considerable amount of time training so dogs are in box for a fair amount of time. Thanks

    Hunter, my dogs spent a lot of time in that box. One is a stocky 73 lbs and the other a tall lanky 57 lbs. Stayed in it long weekends at hunt tests, in the heat and also in the middle of winter. No problems at all. Just let em stretch periodically. They went to work with me a lot and stayed in the box until lunch and then we trained and they stayed in it all afternoon. Never a problem for us.

    I like a taller box. Think mine are 24 or 26.
