I need to purchase a couple of crates to feed my dogs in, what size would be good to feed a full grown 75lb German Shepherd in?
42" x 30" or 48" x 33"
What size do you guys use?

 44 x 30 is my males crate size(airline approved). He's about 85lbs and fits quite comfortably. We bought the biggest size we could find, but I'm sure their are much larger.  We bought ours on sale for $220, they can be quite pricey depending on if you want all of the extras. Wire crates are much larger and cheaper, if they're just going to be in them to eat, or for short periods of time, you could look into getting one of those. We have 2 in our vehicle, they're great for traveling and to have on hand - just in case.

Yes, I'm looking at the wire crates and the two sizes I am finding is 42" or 48".

I have several of both sizes. I would recommend the 48".

Best,
Rick

Those are some huge crates!  I use 36"s in my dog van and 42"s in the house.
