I'm looking to buy my puppy, Chewy, a new crate and I'm having a hard time deciding between a metal pan and ABS. Currently, the Chewy is in my other dog, Bella's, old crate, which has no pan because Bella had eaten the ABS pan when she was a puppy. Which is my concern with buying another ABS crate pan for this puppy. Bella has a ABS one now, but she is an adult and no longer chews. My concern with a metal pan is that it will rust over time.
Anyone owned both? What was your preference? Thanks.
While I'm at it, I might as well ask this too: Chewy's dad was a GSD mix and his mom was a Collie (and I'm thinking Husky) mix. He's 7 weeks and 8lbs. I'm looking at a 48" crate, because that's what those breeds are recommended for (it also says 90lbs+), but when I look up GSD, Collie, or Husky pups at his age, they seem to be 2-3lbs+ bigger than him and I can't imagine him topping out at 90lbs or more? Think I should go with the 48" to be safe?
Oh and here's the two of them:
