    Where is the best place to buy them? In the HRM or Valley. I am looking for two to fit pups that should finish between 50 and 70lbs. Would large be the right size? Also, I would prefer the collapsible metal ones.

    Thanks Guys!:D

    We got ours at Walmart. It is the PetMate brand (I do believe) and was much cheaper than Pets Unlimited, even on sale. It's a black coated metal crate with a removable partition for training. We picked up the second largest (estimating our puppy will be 50-60 lbs) and it was just over $100.00. The one we grabbed said something to the effect of 'good for Retrievers, Labs, etc' so we figured out the size by that.

    Good luck!

    X2 on the PetMate wire kennel

    Our make Boxer doesnt care for the plastic ones but loves his steel wire one

    And have to love that they are collapsible and go into the bottom of a car trunk easily

    We actually have 4 XL crates (easier to have multiples then lug them up and down the steps. We got some at Walmart and some at Canadian Tire. They are metal.
