    Default Remington Dog Crate

    I was wondering if anyone has used the Remington dog crates and what they thought of them? I was told that the large was big enough for labs that weigh less then 90 lbs. didn't know how true that was. Also didn't know how much room they should have to move around or stretch out.

    Thanks for any input

    They are a little more expensive but check out the Ruff Tough Kennels.

    I have a small Remington that my puppy was shipped in. I do not like it. The things that hold it together are cheap and the door hinges closer to the center than other brands.
    Pay attention to your dog, and train that dog as an individual. No schedules, no cookie-cutter formulas. You'll be fine.

    The above was posted by Evan Graham, I liked it and decided to use it for my sig. Sorry for the confusion.

    A big dog can bend the wire so it pops open. I would never buy them again

    How big is the dog? A crate 35" long X 26" high is about right for a standard size labrador (up to 70 lbs-ish). If it is not spending a lot of time in it you could go smaller.

    I just ordered this size (35" L X 26" H) Rough and Tuff kennel---only 22" wide so 2 will fit between the wheel bases of our pickup truck (2 of the similarly sized Remington's will not fit). I think there is a review of the R & Ts somewhere in the product review forum.

    The plastic crates I saw in the stores were really flimsy.

    I just got one of those RUFF Tough kennels, by far the best plastic kennel i've ever seen.

    I payed $40 for my Medium Remington, the similar size Ruff Tuff was $140. The remington is pretty flimsy however I for how I only use them for hunting season and occasional trips I think I might get 5 or 6 years out of it. The Ruff Tuff would probably last ten years of everyday use, however there is very little ventilation to them, might not be the best warm weather crate.
