Hey guys!! Ok i need to order a crate within the next few weeks of amazon in order to get it in time for my pup.. Ive been looking. And im not sure what to buy.. Idk good brands? That a husky wont break.. That is safe for a husky.. And big enough when he is fully grown.. I know i dont want a plastic one.. I also would like to have one with one of those dividers for when he is a pup.. So anyone get any suggestions??

I like the metal pan ones honestly, they have a lip that will hold any mess in and they can't chew them up. I have this one

http://www.amazon.com/Three-Doors-Folding-Kennel-Divider/dp/B0031YT4K4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1354216338&sr=8-3&keywords=blue+dog+crate+with+metal+pan

Its brand is Best Pet. I have blue one for steve, and a pink one for cali. Steve's came with divider in it, Cali's didn't but I found it on craigslist

I got one off of ebay. It's made by Champion Dog I believe is the name of the company. It was like $55 for a huge crate with a divider, I think it's a 42" crate? I haven't used it yet since I bought a small crate from walmart to use for a little while, which Nikko still fits, but I know there are a few people on here who bought the Champion crate

Just do a search on amazon for pink crate, they are out there. I like them, the latches on the crates are better to keep the dogs in, Mika could open the standard crate, but not one of these.

I've got the Champion one in big, bright pink. It's huge and yes, it does come with the divider. Also ships free. I think mine came really quick too. Like 3 days maybe.

Ok so i got my crate.. Its a 48" champion with metal pan.. It arrived really quick which i was happy with but had a decent size dent and bend in the pan.. But still usable.. I emailed seller and he is giving me $25 back.. I only payes 69 with shipping so with 25 back i cant beat the price for that big of a crate for 44.. I wish it came with a divider though.. But i already have a idea on how to make my own..

That's a bummer that the crate had a dent in it---but awesome that they are giving you a partial refund.
How do you plan on making one? I'm intrigued!

Just something quick simple and would work, not realy pretty but.. Kind of hard to explain but ill try.. I will put 2x4 down between the wires from top to the bottom of the pan where i want the cage to but cut off at.. Then from the side ill will stick 1 2x4 in front of the 2x4s i put in fr the top and 1 behind.. So the vertical ones one slide around.. Like i said nothing pretty but should work and easy to chanage if i need to make it bigger.

We have one of these for each dog. It comes with the divider. The tray is plastic, but they haven't tried to chew on it or anything. They can stretch out and contort themselves however they want, these things are big enough that I can get in there with them if I wanted. The tray comes out easily for cleaning, but has a latch on it so the dog can't slide it out. It folds down very easy and I haven't had them escape, or even get close to it.
