As I am shopping for my new pup, I have been looking at crates too and I noticed that some people really prefer to give their pups the minimal amount of space necessary as this is supposedly safer. However, it seems really uncomfortable to me.
Looking online at crate sizing reccomendations, most say that there should be plenty of room to move about and additional height above the dogs head. Not a toy dog in an XL crate but some headway anyway.
What's the deal?
Nice forum by the way, I have been learning quite a bit.
