Dog Crates. Wednesday , January 31st , 2018 - 04:51:29 AM
Various crate designs are available, with different qualities. The most common are either welded mesh cages comprised of metal grates for sides, with a removable tray in the bottom for easier cleaning; or, rigid plastic crates, usually with clips that attach the top half to the bottom. Both are sturdy and longlasting designs, but are also bulky and difficult to move. Some metal crates can be disassembled or collapsed, but even these tend to be less convenient than the third type: softsided dog crates, made of nylon or other fabric stretched over a metal frame.
Its important to remember to keep the crating experience positive. If you purchase steel crates for your pet, you want them to enjoy being in them. Use positive reinforcement and never use the cage as a form of punishment. These types of punishments cause animals undue stress and negate the positive benefits that you purchased the dog crate for in the first place. Positive reinforcement is the best way to work on crate training or any training with your dog. Most dog owners find dog crates to be an indispensable piece of equipment.
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.
