This makes them popular among those who have limited space in their home or car, and do not use the item on a daily basis. People who take their dogs camping also find soft dog crates useful, as they can be packed easily. The elderly or disabled, or anyone who has difficulty lifting heavy objects, should consider this advantage to a soft dog crate. Similarly, soft dog crates differ from rigid ones in cleaning. Metal or plastic dog crates must be handwashed. Although many offer removable floor pans in case of accidents, these must still be scrubbed clean.
It is best to begin crate training with dogs while they are puppies, but older dogs can be trained to go into crates as well. The best way to start is to set the crate up without any expectations of the dog actually going in. Let the dog check the crate out and get used to it. Once the dog is used to the crate, begin to put treats or toys inside to persuade the dog to go in. It is usually only a short time before dogs begin to go into the crates of their own volition. Once they start going in, begin closing the door for short periods of time, gradually increasing the time, and before you know it, your dog will be crate trained.
