    im buying a cage for my pit as im going to bring him inside during the winter but as he is still young im going to get it now to get him used to it

    do you think this size is big enough for a pit

    36" x 24 x 26.4 inches

    That should be big enough I am not sure how big the dog is or will be.I have found you do not want the kennel to large. Dogs seem to be more comfortable in a confined area if you are going to crate them

    thanks,

    he is not 3 foot tall so i think that is should be alright as pits dont get to be 3 feet do they ??

    Oscar is currently around maybe just over 2 feet tall at 7 months i heard that they stop growing at 1 years old and then just get wider

    Those Cage dimensions you gave typically are length width height in that order
    So that kennel should be 36 inches long 24 inches wide and 26.4 inches high
    I would measure your dogs Height that is tall in my experience Abby is about 21 inches at the withers and she is a good size Amstaff at 65lbs now if you have an American Bully I have seen them much taller. How much does your dog weigh do you know the blood line

    i took my dog of a friends friend the dog is a red nose and was bought over into England from Ireland he might not be 2 feet tall when i think about it it might just be in my head he comes up to below my knees and im 6 foot

    Ok well the middle of my Knee is 23 inches and I am 6 foot 4 so your dog is probably shorter then 24 inches most likely will be in the 16 to 20 inch range so the kennel you are looking at should be tall enough for him

    I find the best method to store a pit is in another pit,

    It loks like a nice kenne, and Oscar look comfortable!

    Rule of thumb is that the dog must be able to stand up and turn around in the crate. It must also be able to stretch out comfortable, and it looks like Oscar can do that.

    Also, I have a crate escape artist, who managed to pop the doors open - well, almost - one time, he did not quite get out and got stuck; blissfully, the whimpers woke me up.

    Oscar may be smarter than Trusty, but we padlock the crate doors, when he is in there.

    Thanks, MN - I had looked this one a while ago - but our padlock system seems to work :) That crate sure looks like it is for serious offenders, LOL.
