Forum Rules
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.

I am getting 2 Siberian Husky puppies in June. One is a girl and one is a boy, both going to be 5 months old. Currently, the puppies sleep in a large crate together. When I get the puppies I want to continue them sleeping each in their own little house. The breeder has taken the time to crate train/potty train them both, and they are responding well, sometimes accidents. My question is crate size. My end goal is the have crates only for them to sleep in at night, and to put in for maybe an hour or two if I have an appointment. Other than that they will roam the house and outside. Also, my end goal is for the dogs to have their own space or “house” if you know what I mean. Please give me advice. I was thinking a 42” for each, but could I get them smaller ones?

The grown size of the dogs may determine the crates you choose.  We have three different sized crates (we have three dogs).  Ginger, our Aussie uses a 36" crate that's slightly smaller than Mika's (different manufacturer).  Mika our 45lb female uses a 36" crate.  Max uses a 42" one because he's bigger.

Also we got the 42" so that we could transport both dogs in one crate in the car.  It works "ok".  It's a little tight, but we only take both of them if we are going on short trips.

36" is about right for Mika.  42" would give her extra stretching out room.  42" is about right for Max, but he usually sleeps on the floor all stretched out.

What you choose may also depend on space in your house or wherever you are going to put the crates.  Be sure to get crates with dividers so you can contain the dogs in smaller spaces until they need the larger space.  This is said to help with potty training.  e.g. if the crate is too big, they may potty in one side and sleep in another.

Here is a picture of Mika in a 36" crate as a point of reference.
