Dog Crates. Monday , February 05th , 2018 - 14:47:37 PM
You thought through your choice of a home, give your dogs home the same thought. The size of your puppy/dog will depend on the size dog crate you will need. Some crates come with a dividers to adjust the size crate to the growth of the puppy. In general the dog should be able to stand and turn around. To help you with your search here is some details about the different types that are offered. Solid plastic dog crates are sturdy with openings near the top for air flow. Air flow is required for secure travel, such as in an airplane.
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.
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.
