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.
These soft dog crates are the lightest and more portable of them, and tend to be more attractive as well. Unfortunately, the fabric in these types does not hold up well to the gnawings of a puppy or a dog struggling to escape its crate. If you are taking in a puppy, or dog that is not already cratetrained, save the soft dog crate for later in life. Once you have a crate in your home, you can begin introducing the dog to its new bedroom. The most important thing to remember here is to make sure that all associations the dog makes with the crate be pleasant ones.
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.
Wire canine crates with divider panels are considered to be cost effective. They provide separate compartments for the dog. At times, pets choose one corner as their play area and another as sleeping space. These crates can also be adjusted as dogs grow in size and reduce additional expenses of purchasing a larger wire crate. Wire crates are appropriate carriers for pets if a family is required to travel. It prevents a dog from experiencing anxiety, as the pet is familiar with its crate.
