If your dog's crate is too big, he may feel that he can eliminate at one end and still keep his living area clean.

Can I crate my dog for 12 hours?

Dogs have historically been left alone for long stretches without a second thought. Few people today would admit to leaving their dogs home alone for 24 or 48 hours or more, but leaving the dog home for 10 to 12 hours is not at all uncommon – and questioning this practice can sometimes lead to social ridicule.

Should I cover my dog's crate?

Covering the crate can help with this. However, some dogs are the opposite and get stressed if they can't see out of their crate and want to know what's going on. For Labs, many people leave the crate uncovered during the day, but do cover it lightly at night to reduce stimulation when their Labs should be sleeping.

Should a dog be able to stand up in his crate?

Dogs need their privacy. No wire crates that are completely see-through. The dog should be able to stand up in the crate and turn around, but they should not have much more room than this. Remember we are trying to give the dog a small, safe place to relax that resembles a den, not a play pen.

Size is an important consideration. A crate should be big enough for your dog to comfortably stand and turn around in. For a growing puppy, it's fine to choose a crate that will accommodate his adult size–just confine your pup to a smaller area of the crate while housetraining.
