    I am so excited as I am finally collecting my irish setter puppy on August 22nd. I have waited a long time and now it is getting very close. Is anyone else as excited as me?

    yes i am getting all the brushes and combs etc and clippers!!! Puppies are fun and I am expecting some real hard work and lots of patience. I love the irish setter so much as they also grow in to the most beautiful adults (not saying other breeds don't of course) but i am biased, haha. Love everyone elses pics by the way

    They are gorgeous. They seem to have become more rare these days, I remember seeing a few around when I was little.

    Hello everyone and thank you for sharing in my excitement. Just have a question which you may be able to help me with... I am going to buy a crate (after much deliberation) and read that I need to buy at least a 42inch one for my breed of dog. However I hopefully only intend to use it for the first few months and then if rueben allows it, I will stop using it. So can I buy a 36inch crate instead?

    I used a 36" crate for Zoe when she was tiny then changed her for a 42" but she is not a big bitch. If you are having a male then I would go for the biggest cage you can as my friends males are a lot bigger than Zoe. He'll also grow pretty quickly by the time Zoe was 6 months she could just about squeeze into her 36" crate not that she was still in it by then she had a 42". Remember to look at the door size too some of my 36" crates have small doors that even my whippets struggle to get through.

    Thanks Freyja, My only concern was that it would seem huge to a puppy but I have heard you can get dividers. How is Zoe, hope she is behaving herself:)

    buy the bigger one
    i have a very large cage in my kitchen, we used it for camping,with the dogs
    its always open and my 2 irish love it and sleep together in it
    even tho i have dog beds out the sleep in the cage
    its also handy if you want quiet times or have workmen etc in

    yes think it would work out cheaper to buy a bigger one and get a divider, thats what we have done. :)
