Hello :)

I'm getting a Bedlington Terrier puppy towards the end of october, so I am now trying to organised.

I want to crate train this puppy, but I am unsure of what size crate to get. Obviously, I want to buy the crate big enough for when he's an adult. But do you suggest that I get a divider for when he's a young puppy? Or is it ok to just ensure that every part of the crate is covered for his bed and not use a divider?

Thankyou :)

Charlotte

For crate training to work, you want to keep the space as small as possible—just big enough for him to stand, lie down, and turn around. It has to be close quarters, so the puppy won't be tempted to use a portion of the space as a toilet. I think it's best to use a divider, rather than an oversized dog bed—physically limiting the space, rather than overfilling it.
