Dog Crates. Wednesday , January 31st , 2018 - 13:10:23 PM
A wire crate is a good option if youre buying a dog crate for a bed. It is a good idea to get a crate bumper for comfort and safety. Many dogs also prefer a covering over the back and perhaps the sides of the crate to give them a greater sense of privacy. This doesnt have to be expensive: we have a blanket draped over our dogs crate. Using a dog crate for a bed doesnt mean that you cant be stylish as well. There are many crates that are both comfortable for your dog and will fit with any décor.
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.
A good idea is also a crate bumper, which is very similar to a cot bumper. Puppies have an instinctive desire to keep their sleeping area clean. Using a crate takes advantage of this and helps your puppy learn to control his bladder between trips outside. He will have accidents, of course, but by using a dog crate as a bed and combining it with a regular toileting, feeding and play schedule, toilet training will be quicker and less stressful for everyone involved. Just remember never to use the crate as a form of punishment.
