Hi, just found this site, and started looking through all the great topics. We are about to rescue a Ridgeback/German Shep puppy who is 3 months old. We have not had a puppy in our house in the last 13 years, and curious about crate training. Should I buy a crate to fit the puppy, or the dog he will grow to be? Our last experience in crate training was challenging, as our Ridgeback defecated/urinated on herself daily when she was put in the crate. The crate we bought (1999) was for her to grow into, so while she was a puppy, it was very large. We tried for about 3 months, then gave up.

I would like to crate train our new dog, but not sure if it was the crate, the dog, or us. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!!
