    My pudelpointer is over 6 months old and has officially outgrown his hand me down kennel for pups. Looking at a Ruff Tuff. Would love a Gunner Kennel but can’t fathom paying the money. Moose will be about 60 pounds when full grown so wondering what size I should get if anyone has experience with one. There website doesn’t really give a weight range on what size will typically work. Guess I could take him to Cabela’s. I saw them there a few months ago.
    Thanks in advance

    Don't go to big on the kennel size. Keeping them safe during travel is the goal. If they have room to turn around with ease or stand up with room to spare at the top the kennel is to big.

    Found this video on the brand you mentioned on what size to get.

    If he is only 60 lbs large will be fine.

    yup just enough room to make a ball and lay down and not move around much! Kennel in truck is different than kennel in house! My dog holes on my trailer measure like 2'x2' that's it, I only want dogs to get in them and ball up and lay down.

    Congrats on your choice of dog , I have one. Males can get a little leggy like a wirehair and don't be suprised if he ends up close to 70. Mine did! Anything bigger than an intermediate will work.
