Good Evening All, This summer I brought home a new family. A beautiful 8 week old female lab. She is white with yellow markings. When I first brought Yuki home I purchased a Petmate 28 inch Ultimate or Vari kennel not sure which now. I knew when I bought it I was going to have to buy another and that isnt the problem. The problem is that I found the crate that I want and I will post the image here to give you an idea of it but the largest the crate comes in is a 35 and what I am being told is that I will probably need a 40 inch for her. I love the design on this one the door as some people would say on the side. Its large and open to me easy access. My questions are the following: 1) Will she really need a 40 inch or will the 35 work? 2) If this is too small is there any where to find something with this type design?
