Fleurette. Dog Crates. February 02nd , 2018.
I have found my dog will happily chew her rawhide bone as she is dropping off to sleep in her crate and again when she wakes. Especially first thing in the mornings this can give me a much appreciated extra fifteen minutes of sleep. It is a good idea to give your dog some treats when you put him in his crate, to reinforce positive feelings: a little snack before he settles down to sleep would go down well. If your dog wears a collar make sure you remove it before he goes into the crate. Dogs have choked to death when their collar or Id tags have caught on the crates bars.
A wire crate is a good option if youre buying a dog crate for a bed. It is a good idea to get a crate bumper for comfort and safety. Many dogs also prefer a covering over the back and perhaps the sides of the crate to give them a greater sense of privacy. This doesnt have to be expensive: we have a blanket draped over our dogs crate. Using a dog crate for a bed doesnt mean that you cant be stylish as well. There are many crates that are both comfortable for your dog and will fit with any décor.
For this reason, majorities of owners prefer to use portable dog crates. They are an absolute necessity when pets need to travel. These crates are available in varying sizes and can even house large dogs. Portable dog crates are convenient and easy to use. Most varieties are foldable designs and can be reduced in size when not in use, which makes them easy to carry. Portable dog crates are appropriate for family picnics and vacations. This allows pet owners to carry their dogs everywhere they go. These compact and lightweight designs can be stored and maintained with ease.
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.
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.
