The cheapest soft dog crates will be no frills just six sides and a zipper while more expensive models may offer various extra features: locking mechanisms, reinforced seams, rubberized feet, loops for ground stakes, side pockets, and others.
Pet owners that are looking for dog crates that are durable, easy to assemble and take down and easy to transport should investigate stainless steel dog crates. These crates are crafted out of tough stainless steel to provide the durability needed to comfortably house any dog. Once dogs get used to being in crates, they love it. It can can be like your pets own personal den. If you want your animal to feel secure and comfortable, stainless steel dog crates are the way to go.
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.
Dont force the dog into its crate right away rather, lure it in with treats or toys. Even once the dog has entered the crate, you should not seal it in immediately. Wait until the dog seems comfortable in the crate you want this space to be a safe haven, not a prison. By the same token, dont use yelling, hitting, or other negative conditioning techniques to try to train your dog. Dogs, like people, will always respond much more effectively to positive reinforcement. You must also be as consistent as possible in maintaining your rules.
If your dog whines or barks while in its crate, you must neither yell or pound on the crate, nor let the dog out the former will simply scare and confuse the dog, while the latter rewards its bad behavior. Be firm, but loving at all times. By maintaining a positive and consistent course of training, your dog will soon come to understand its dog crate for what it is a cozy private space to call its own. A good quality crate should last through the lifetime of your dog, serving to keep its occupant safe and warm and secure throughout many happy years.
