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.

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.
