1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi we're getting two husky puppies in 4 weeks there sisters and we've done a lot of research on keeping them but was just wondering what size crates people recommend for puppies and wether to crate the sister together or separately. Any advice welcome even if not about crating thanks x

Having two puppies of the same age at the same time is very difficult. They need away time from each other and a lot of one on one time with you. Crate separately. Train separately. Sometimes even walk separately so that both build confidence. If you don't give them their own time and pretty much own everything you run the risk of having one really outgoing dog and the other will be shy and lack confidence. I usually suggest buying what you can once, so get a large enough crate for however big they will be grown and then buy a divider to make them smaller so each pup has just enough space to lay down or turn around but not so much space they will want to choose a corner to soil in.

Hey Squires92

Wow! Two puppies! Good luck! Shocked

As for your crate question, I bought Echo a 42 inch crate. Most say 36 inches is sufficient, and the manufacturers suggest getting a 48 inch...So I bought in the middle =D.

Don't regret it at all, he has a bit more room to roam and can sprawl on his side which he loves doing comfortably. Seems more humane since I am gone for hours sometimes...48 inches is a bit too large in my opinion. You'll soon realize that huskies like to find the smallest spaces to contort their body into and hide to feel safe. Don't forget to buy one with a divider for training purposes so you can slowly make the crate bigger as they grow.

As for sharing a crate, I wouldn't recommend it. One crate for one dog.

Best of luck!

Cheers!
