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.
Along with being convenient travel options, they are convenient and spacious for pets. These crates are attractive, durable, and of a high quality. They are also rust proof and are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Portable dog crates may be permitted in air travel and are a necessity in a number of hotels. Dog crates are the best options to kennel your dog especially when you are away at work or if you go out on errands such as shopping. They keep your dog safe at times when it is not possible for you to have a watch on him.
If you shout at your dog or smack him and then put him into his crate he will see his crate as a place to be feared: those associations are the last thing you want to create. You dont want your puppy to toddle off into a corner of his crate to go to the toilet, so get a crate with a divider. This can be moved as he grows, and discarded once he is grown and/or completely housetrained. If you are getting a dog crate as a bed for a dog that is already fully grown, make sure the crate is big enough for him to stretch out, stand up and turn around comfortably.
Soft dog crates can be easily folded for storage or transporting along with being lightweight. They provide the dog with a stronger sense of security in strange places while still allowing visibility and airflow. They cannot be used with dogs who are likely to dig or chew at their crate. Soft crates are not suitable for transporting dogs in any type of vehicle. Dog tents are a new alternative to soft crates. They offer many of the same advantages and disadvantages of soft crates.
Depending on your budget, you may choose to take advantage of some of these extras, or not. However, even the most highend, pricey soft crates will be reduced to a worthless pile of scraps in no time at all if its resident chooses to destroy it. Unlike hard plastic or metal crates, soft dog crates are not appropriate for vigorous chewers, or dogs who are not yet kenneltrained and may try to escape. Given enough time, a distressed, struggling dog will easily tear through mesh, rip out seams, and break zippers.
