Looking for the best crates for small dogs? Thankfully, it is a lot easier than finding one for, say, a giant breed dog! With a smaller breed, you have a lot more budget-friendly options. Of course, not all crates are created equal, and just because your pooch is a teeny, tiny guy doesn’t mean you can just pop him into a shoe box-sized crate and call it a day. He’ll still need plenty of room to turn around, stretch out and relax. After all, we want our dogs to think of their crates as their own little getaway, a safe spot to relax when we’re not home. Here are our picks for some of the best crates for small dogs.
