Evangelina Howell. Dog Crates. February 06th , 2018.
They fold down to an even smaller size than the soft crate and are super lightweight so they can be stuffed into tent bags and taken virtually anywhere. They make ideal crates for people who need to pack their crates into cramped vehicles, suitcases or for people who hike, camp or are involved in dog sports. Like soft crates, dog tents are not suitable for puppies, dogs who are not housebroken, or for vehicle travel. Research the different styles of dog crates and sizing available to ensure you will have the right home for your dog.
These crates are made of either plastic or wire. The plastic dog crates are used to transport dogs from one place to the other with ease, especially by air. Today people use crates at homes too as shelters for their pets. Extra large crates comes in tan or hunter green colors. The plastic crate is a 3 piece unit. The top piece has holes on them facilitating air supply. The bottom solid piece is sturdier than the other parts and the third part of the crate is the wired door. The bottom pieces are connected with screws.
A wire crate is a good option if youre buying a dog crate for a bed. It is a good idea to get a crate bumper for comfort and safety. Many dogs also prefer a covering over the back and perhaps the sides of the crate to give them a greater sense of privacy. This doesnt have to be expensive: we have a blanket draped over our dogs crate. Using a dog crate for a bed doesnt mean that you cant be stylish as well. There are many crates that are both comfortable for your dog and will fit with any décor.
If you shout at your dog or smack him and then put him into his crate he will see his crate as a place to be feared: those associations are the last thing you want to create. You dont want your puppy to toddle off into a corner of his crate to go to the toilet, so get a crate with a divider. This can be moved as he grows, and discarded once he is grown and/or completely housetrained. If you are getting a dog crate as a bed for a dog that is already fully grown, make sure the crate is big enough for him to stretch out, stand up and turn around comfortably.
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.
