Petra Hines. Dog Crates. January 31st , 2018.
They fold down to an even smaller size than the soft crate and are super lightweight so they can be stuffed into tent bags and taken virtually anywhere. They make ideal crates for people who need to pack their crates into cramped vehicles, suitcases or for people who hike, camp or are involved in dog sports. Like soft crates, dog tents are not suitable for puppies, dogs who are not housebroken, or for vehicle travel. Research the different styles of dog crates and sizing available to ensure you will have the right home for your dog.
Wire crates purchases are made keeping in mind a pets size. An ideal wire dog crate will have ample room for a pet to move around without any limitations. These crates provide ample ventilation and security for a dog. Wire dog crates are fairly easy to clean and require low maintenance. A majority of these crates are available with long lasting rustproof coats. Wire canine crates are available in a variety of styles in order to accommodate large and small dogs. It is easy to find collapsible and folding models based on the pets needs.
A good idea is also a crate bumper, which is very similar to a cot bumper. Puppies have an instinctive desire to keep their sleeping area clean. Using a crate takes advantage of this and helps your puppy learn to control his bladder between trips outside. He will have accidents, of course, but by using a dog crate as a bed and combining it with a regular toileting, feeding and play schedule, toilet training will be quicker and less stressful for everyone involved. Just remember never to use the crate as a form of punishment.
A number of crates are available with security door latches, and quick latching systems. These have ample breathing room and do not suffocate dogs during journeys. Double door folding designs are appropriate portable dog crates when pets need to be transported a long way if owners are relocating to a new city or town. A majority of travelers, mobile home and recreational vehicle owners prefer to purchase portable dog crates that can easily be fitted and help reduce anxiety and panic for pets during a journey.
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.
