Dog Crates. Friday , February 02nd , 2018 - 15:03:35 PM
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. Dog crates allow owners to confine their dogs in an environment that quickly becomes familiar and reassuring to the dog.
Let him investigate the crate. Just as with a puppy, put in soft bedding and a treat, and let him get used to things while the door remains open. Once he is accustomed to his crate you will most likely find he will take himself off there to sleep or to get away from noisy children or visitors. What should I put in my dogs crate? Put washable bedding perhaps a favorite blanket in the crate to make it comfortable. Put the favorite toy of the moment in as well and perhaps a rawhide bone to chew on.
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.
