They are just as sturdy and dependable as traditional metal and plastic crates. Soft Dog Crates have the added benefit of being better ventilated, increased visibility, and Soft Dog Crates are extremely portable. When it comes to your Dog Supplies nothing beats a Soft Dog Crate. You are bringing home a new family member this one with four legs, not two and he will need a place to sleep. Everyone needs a space to call their own. Managed properly your dogs crate will become his room, a cosy place he goes for privacy. Think of it like a toddlers cot or playpen.
It is best to begin crate training with dogs while they are puppies, but older dogs can be trained to go into crates as well. The best way to start is to set the crate up without any expectations of the dog actually going in. Let the dog check the crate out and get used to it. Once the dog is used to the crate, begin to put treats or toys inside to persuade the dog to go in. It is usually only a short time before dogs begin to go into the crates of their own volition. Once they start going in, begin closing the door for short periods of time, gradually increasing the time, and before you know it, your dog will be crate trained.
The wire kennel as the name suggests is built in wire and offers excellent ventilation. They come with either one or two doors. It is very important to choose the right dog crate. Large crates usually suit large dogs. Breeds that need extra large dog crates are Afghan, Akita, Alaskan malamute, Bernese mountain dog, Bloodhounds, Briar, Bull Mastiff and Doberman. You can find a variety of attractive designs in extra large crates in the market. Your skill lies in choosing the right crate depending on the specific requirements of your pet.
And even the small teeth of a puppy will make short work of fabric if it chooses to chew on its home. For these reasons, soft crates should only be used for dogs that are trained and already comfortable in a crate. Where soft dog crates lose out on durability, they excel in convenience. Large metal crates can be quite heavy, and even plastic ones that are lighter tend to be awkward to move. The fabriconframe design of soft dog crates makes them light, easy to lift, and easy to break down for storage or transport.
A good idea is also a crate bumper, which is very similar to a cot bumper. Puppies have an instinctive desire to keep their sleeping area clean. Using a crate takes advantage of this and helps your puppy learn to control his bladder between trips outside. He will have accidents, of course, but by using a dog crate as a bed and combining it with a regular toileting, feeding and play schedule, toilet training will be quicker and less stressful for everyone involved. Just remember never to use the crate as a form of punishment.
