Liza Cobb. Dog Crates. February 07th , 2018.
A dog crate should be big enough for the dog to stand up, turn around, and otherwise move with ease. Unless you want to buy multiple crates throughout the life of your dog, youll need to buy one that will fit its fullgrown size, even if youre getting the dog as a puppy. The tricky part about this is that you dont want the dog to have more room than it actually needs, at least not once it has outgrown the puppy stage. However, setting up dividers to reduce the space of the crate isnt difficult, so err on the side of too large rather than too small.
A residual scent left by dog waste may encourage the dog to resoil the crate. Soft dog crates, on the other hand, can typically be disassembled machinewashed. This is generally more convenient than handwashing, although one should keep in mind that fabric is more likely to stain as a result of dog waste than plastic or metal. On that note, aesthetics are one more reason many dog owners prefer soft dog crates. Wire cages have an institutional look that some find unappealing, and plastic models tend to lack style.
Its important to remember to keep the crating experience positive. If you purchase steel crates for your pet, you want them to enjoy being in them. Use positive reinforcement and never use the cage as a form of punishment. These types of punishments cause animals undue stress and negate the positive benefits that you purchased the dog crate for in the first place. Positive reinforcement is the best way to work on crate training or any training with your dog. Most dog owners find dog crates to be an indispensable piece of equipment.
Many soft dog crates are designed with the same attention to lines, color, and utility that one might find in a trendy backpack. Although no one can say whether or not dogs appreciate these little details, styleconscious dog owners certainly do. Hopefully, this has been an informative and helpful guide to choosing a dog crate. We wish you and your pets cozy nights, safe travels, and all the best in your adventures together. When it comes to providing a comfortable place for your dog to call home nothing beats a Soft Dog Crate.
Soft dog crates can be easily folded for storage or transporting along with being lightweight. They provide the dog with a stronger sense of security in strange places while still allowing visibility and airflow. They cannot be used with dogs who are likely to dig or chew at their crate. Soft crates are not suitable for transporting dogs in any type of vehicle. Dog tents are a new alternative to soft crates. They offer many of the same advantages and disadvantages of soft crates.
