My Standard Poodle pup comes home in 2 weeks and would like to know what size crate should I get? I will crate train him till he is housebroken. I'm figuring I will need a crate till he is at least 7 or 8 mos old. I need to get a crate that will last that long. How big do they get on average at that age, or for that matter, at age 1? If I can avoid a huge crate, that would be great. How long has it taken to housebreak your dogs? Anyone, feel free to answer. I'm open to all suggestions.
