Looking to buy Large Dog Crates?

Whether you’ve decided to crate train a puppy, or simply need a safe and secure place to house your canine in the car, OnBuy’s range of the best large dog crates for sale is the paw-fect place to start. Offering the best dog crates for large dogs, we have lightweight plastic models and durable wire alternatives that’ll leave your pups simply beaming with delight. Once you’ve chosen the right large dog cage, don’t forget to kit it out with a cosy blanket and fluffy bed, to create the ultimate den of zen. 

What size crate should I choose for my dog?

It is common misconception that a larger space means a happier hound, but this isn’t necessarily the case. Pups prefer a snug and cosy atmosphere that mimics their natural dens, rather than larger, roomier areas that may be more open and spacious. In most cases, the crate should be large enough to allow the dog to turn around and sit up in, without any issues or pain. Your pup should also be able to stretch their legs out fully. Though the examples on this list are better suited to larger, heavier dogs, like Dobermans, German Shepherds and Boxers, OnBuy’s extensive range means that every breed and size is catered for.

Crates offer a safe, quite place for nervous pups to relax when in a new environment (whether that be on holiday, in a moving vehicle, or when introduced to new sights and sounds). They can also massively help when it comes to toilet training and bedtime routines, keeping you safe in the knowledge that your precious pet is sheltered, secure and cosy throughout the days and nights. As your dog grows into an adult (when a larger cage is essential), the crate will become their quiet and relaxing spot – somewhere to enjoy a snooze and perhaps a chew on their favourite toy. 

Where should I place my crate?

Being in a crate should be a positive experience for your pup, and they should want to spend time in one at home. It’s certainly not to be used as a punishment, and locking them away in an empty room can make doggies feel excluded, isolated and lonely. To keep your pooch feeling like part of the happy throng, place your crate in a busy area of the home, where they can see and hear what’s happening with their family. A corner of the living room or kitchen are ideal places.

Wherever you do decide to store your crate, make sure that it isn’t in a drafty area, or close to a heat source (like a radiator, fireplace, or direct sunlight). After all, your canine needs to be comfortable with little chance of feeling too hot or cold.

Frequently asked questions about large dog crates

Can I leave my dog in a crate for a long period of time?

Numerous studies have shown that if you leave your pup in a crate for an extended period of time, they may start to show aggression or experience withdrawal. Ultimately, it can impact their behaviour and psychological state of mind. 

Is a wire crate a good choice for my dog?

Wire crates are very well-ventilated and extremely portable. Yes, they may be slightly heavier than fabric dog crates, but your dog will be able to see his surroundings and will benefit from the extra air flow. 

What should I do if my dog’s crate is too big?

If your pup's crate is too big, it's not a problem. Issues only start to arise if the cage is too small, as this can cause your dog to feel incredibly claustrophobic and cramped. 

Is it cruel to leave my dog in the crate at night?

If your dog is properly trained, and the crate has been introduced correctly, they should see it as a safe and happy place. If they like to spend time there, and appear comfortable, it's not cruel to leave your pup in the crate overnight.

Do specialists recommend crate training?

Most trainers and veterinarians do recommend crate training, especially for puppies. Not only does it help with toilet training, it can also be of great use when encouraging pups to keep their surrounding area clean.
