The best size crate for golden retrievers is a 42″ crate. Puppies grow quickly, and crates need to be just big enough for them to lay down and be comfortable in, so instead of getting a new crate for them every few weeks, a 42″ crate with a divider works very well.
Goldens can vary quite considerably in size and generally speaking most are on the large side these days, so I would recommend buying a 42″. However, the best way to know what size crate your Golden Retriever needs is to measure their size and buy the crate that best fits.

Ideally, every dog should have two bowls adapted to its size, breed and its eating habits too.
Wire crates are often the best option for Golden Retrievers. They're large, easy to clean, breathable, and comfortable for your dog. Plastic crates can work well too, but wire crates allow them to see out of the crate and know their family is still with them.
Golden retriever males are 23 to 24 inches tall and weigh about 65 to 75 pounds (29 to 32 kilograms). Females are about 21 to 22 inches tall and weigh about 55 to 65 pounds (25 to 29 kilograms).
A Golden Retriever puppy will grow very quickly, so owners must purchase a larger crate as the dog outgrows his "puppy" crate. Wire crates are superior to wooden crates, as Golden Retriever puppies love to chew!
We do not recommend using a crate for punishment, and crating for more than 4 hours at a time is considered cruel. In addition, crating outside in the yard is also not recommended. Many dogs like to sleep in their crates; most like to find a safe place where they can go to rest.
Only place your Golden Retriever in his crate for a few hours at a time. Generally 1 hour for every 4 weeks of age is a guideline. A new 8-week old-puppy introduced to your home should not be confined for more than 2 hours to his crate.
Crate Size for Golden Retrievers Based on the adult size of a Golden Retriever, their crate size should be roughly 42 inches in length. Specifically, aim for dimensions of 42″ height x 28″ width x 30″ height.
Crate Size for Golden Retrievers If you have a female Golden Retriever, you may be able to get away with the 36 inch dog crate. However, in most cases, it's best to provide more room than too little room. Provided the budget, splurge a little and get the 42 inch.

The table should bring your dog up to approximately the level of your waist, to prevent bending or stretching while brushing, combing or attending to ears or nails. Grooming tables with adjustable legs allow you to groom dogs of different sizes. They also permit you to stand or to sit while grooming.
