To ensure that your dog feels comfortable in the box and is protected all around, determine its size to choose the right dog crate.
In any case, your dog should be able to lie comfortably and turn around.
To get a quick impression of the available lying area in the TAMI box, simply lay out a blanket the size of the interior dimensions of the respective TAMI box on the floor at home and let your dog lie on it.
The recommended interior height of the TAMI Box should be equal to or greater than the height of your dog at the withers.
1. Length of your dog
Measure from the tip of the nose to the base of the tail and add half a leg length.
2. Height of your dog
Measure standing straight down from the shoulder blade to the ground. Add 10% but at least 5 cm.
3. Width of your dog
Measure at the widest point. Width x 2 is the optimal depth of your box.
You now know which box is the right one for your dog.
Now you have to find out if it fits in your car.
1. Depth of your trunk
When measuring the depth, take into account the maximum possible space. IMPORTANT: Also measure the depth from the closed trunk to the back seat at the height of your selected box.
2. Width of your trunk
When measuring the width, make sure that the box has enough space in the height.
3. Height of your trunk
Measure the height from the floor to the headliner, taking into account the window slope.
