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.
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.
It also keeps your home from becoming a mess while you are away. Dog crates help with training the new dog or puppy. A crate is usually the safest place for a dog to be. A dog crate can be bought in different sizes. Dogs belonging to different breeds vary in sizes and hence, crates come in different sizes too. For example, a German shepherd or a Saint Bernard would require an extra large dog crate. There are many types of crates available today including the medium crate, large crate and the extra large crate.
There are many types to choose from today. Among so many choices, stainless steel still remain very popular. Dogs get nervous in dark, poorlyventilated crates. Steel offer the highest amount of light and the best air flow. They are not as flexible as some of the other crates on the market, but having a welllit, wellventilated crate can offset any flexibility issues. Dogs feel more secure when they can see what is going on around them, when they dont feel boxed in. Thats where stainless steel have a definite advantage.
Other factors that have to be considered while picking a dog crate include the gender of your dog, ancestry of the dog (there is a possibility of a mixed ancestry too) and variations within a breed. Some of the colors in which these dog crates are available include Almond, Black, Bright silver zinc, bright zinc, dusty rose, forest green, gold zinc and rattan finish. A large crate has the advantage of supporting the weight of a large dog when it has to be shifted. It is also important to pick a really big crate of good quality.
