The option to secure ones dog in a confined space at night, in the car, or simply whenever its convenient is a great convenience. Dogs, too, seem to enjoy the security and comfort of a dog crate once accustomed to them. When shopping for a dog crate, dog owners have many choices to make size, brand, and design all play a part in choosing the perfect dog crate. The most common crates are a simple plastic shell with a metal grated door. However, there are also a wide range of soft dog crates, made from fabric on a lightweight metal frame.
Depending on your budget, you may choose to take advantage of some of these extras, or not. However, even the most highend, pricey soft crates will be reduced to a worthless pile of scraps in no time at all if its resident chooses to destroy it. Unlike hard plastic or metal crates, soft dog crates are not appropriate for vigorous chewers, or dogs who are not yet kenneltrained and may try to escape. Given enough time, a distressed, struggling dog will easily tear through mesh, rip out seams, and break zippers.
Along with being convenient travel options, they are convenient and spacious for pets. These crates are attractive, durable, and of a high quality. They are also rust proof and are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Portable dog crates may be permitted in air travel and are a necessity in a number of hotels. Dog crates are the best options to kennel your dog especially when you are away at work or if you go out on errands such as shopping. They keep your dog safe at times when it is not possible for you to have a watch on him.
They might also be safer in a car accident than other types. The door is a squeeze latch which offers good security and onehanded operation. The plastic makes it easier to clean. There are some disadvantages with a plastic dog crate. Not all plastic crates can be taken apart when not used so they take up space. Since the crate has openings near the top the dog has limited sight to see things going on around him. Aluminium and wire dog crates are very similar. The aluminium crate can be either fixed or folding. These crates are light weight. When constructed properly they can be very sturdy and they dont rust.
As mentioned above there are advantages and disadvantage to the different types of crates (plastic, softsided, wire) offered. Think about how the crate will be used can help with your choice of homes for your dog. Crate training has become standard practice for many dog owners by this time. Although the common belief that dogs have a natural den instinct is not, in fact, true, they do benefit from an exclusive and secure space to call their own.
