Hi Lauren, I totally agree abnd am thrilled that crate training is becoming more popular. It is not as people once thought 'cruel', a dog is naturally a den animal and they love having their own crate and it has sooo many advantages.
Unfortunately I dont know any suppliers in Cape Town. I would suggest you try to google it and if you dont come right please contact me via my e-mail and i will put you in touch with people in the Cape that may know.
What I would suggest for you is that you buy the crate size for what your dog will eventually be and just partition it off while a pup.
Have a look on my friendsofthedog website for instructions on how to crate train, plus i will shortly be putting up another article by Dr. Ian Dunbar on same.
