We'll be flying with the dogs soon and I'm wondering what size others use for adult GSDs. My dogs are about the same size, but when speaking with the airline personnel, was reminded about the ears, LOL. The standard 'must be able to turn around comfortably, one-inch clearance at the top when sitting', etc. was told to me.
We use an X-Large (40x26x30) crate for our Lab (and her floppy ears) and she has plenty of room. The GSD got in today and seemed OK, but if sitting up straight, doesn't have the one-inch clearance from the top of the ears. I think she'd be fine and width/weight wise there's more than enough room, but I don't want to get to the airport only to have them tell me I need a bigger crate....and "we sell them for a boatload of $$$". The Giant size is the next one up and it just seems enormous.
So, what size crate do you use for your GSD? Thanks.
