I'm going to have a Basenji soon (more or less, still some months to wait )
I think a dog crate could come in handy some times, but I'm not sure wich size could be suitable. The dog should not be caged for hours, but it should be comfortable.
Can you give me some advices?
I have three basenji'sj, One crate, wire, no soild sides, when Belle was pup, 8 weeks she sleep with us, when she started taking over our bed, we moved her into the crate in our kitchen, we stuffed it with towels, fuffy bed and covered it with a sheet for a cave experience, she loved it and went to bed on her own all the time. The new boys took the crate over, she sleeps by herself.
Just go bigger, if your in Houston, Arnies has the best prices on large crates and very helpful.
