Elvira Donovan. 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.
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.
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.
And even the small teeth of a puppy will make short work of fabric if it chooses to chew on its home. For these reasons, soft crates should only be used for dogs that are trained and already comfortable in a crate. Where soft dog crates lose out on durability, they excel in convenience. Large metal crates can be quite heavy, and even plastic ones that are lighter tend to be awkward to move. The fabriconframe design of soft dog crates makes them light, easy to lift, and easy to break down for storage or transport.
Growing puppies alternate between periods of activity and sleeping. As long as you have a regular schedule of toileting, feeding and exercise, your puppy will be happy to use his dog crate for a bed. Just dont expect your puppy to stay in his crate unless he is sleeping: remember he needs lots of love and attention. If you intend to keep him in his crate for long periods perhaps you need to reconsider whether you are able to commit to a dog right now. If you have an older dog you think you may like to crate perhaps you are giving a new home to an older animal from a refuge shelter you can still happily use a dog crate as a bed.
