It’s a bittersweet day in our house! Oscar outgrew his very first crate. I’ve been putting off buying Oscar a new crate because I didn’t want to admit he had outgrown his baby crate. Also, I couldn’t find a larger crate with doors on the top and the front, and I loved the top-opening feature of his first crate.
Oscar’s old crate was getting too small for him though, so I finally gave in and bought him a new one. This one is much roomier, and he can relax, stretch out, and twirl around in it. It took him a few hours to adjust to his new crate, but now he seems happy in it.
Oscar’s new crate is a little bigger than he needs right now since it fits 30-50 pounds, but he is doing well with potty training so I’m not worried about the extra space. Also, I’m sure he’ll grow into it quickly enough! We’ll use his crate as his bed for a bit longer until we’re confident he’s fully potty trained, and then he can just sleep in his own little bed going forward. I know he’ll be excited when that day arrives!
