To calculate how much space the Canadian Eskimo Dog will need get out a ruler and measure your Canadian Eskimo Dog. Measure him standing straight up, sitting on his haunches and especially measure the full dimension of the Canadian Eskimo Dog when he is in the most comfortable, relaxed and stretched out position he can get into. Your Canadian Eskimo Dog should be able to peer out the front door when both sitting and standing. So the Canadian Eskimo Dog will not have to significantly lower his front shoulders or drag his stomach, make sure that door is tall enough.

Your beloved Canadian Eskimo Dog would probably appreciate having a cushion or some sort of pallet to sleep on.
