Dog Crates. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 11:51:27 AM
You thought through your choice of a home, give your dogs home the same thought. The size of your puppy/dog will depend on the size dog crate you will need. Some crates come with a dividers to adjust the size crate to the growth of the puppy. In general the dog should be able to stand and turn around. To help you with your search here is some details about the different types that are offered. Solid plastic dog crates are sturdy with openings near the top for air flow. Air flow is required for secure travel, such as in an airplane.
These soft dog crates are the lightest and more portable of them, and tend to be more attractive as well. Unfortunately, the fabric in these types does not hold up well to the gnawings of a puppy or a dog struggling to escape its crate. If you are taking in a puppy, or dog that is not already cratetrained, save the soft dog crate for later in life. Once you have a crate in your home, you can begin introducing the dog to its new bedroom. The most important thing to remember here is to make sure that all associations the dog makes with the crate be pleasant ones.
Growing puppies alternate between periods of activity and sleeping. As long as you have a regular schedule of toileting, feeding and exercise, your puppy will be happy to use his dog crate for a bed. Just dont expect your puppy to stay in his crate unless he is sleeping: remember he needs lots of love and attention. If you intend to keep him in his crate for long periods perhaps you need to reconsider whether you are able to commit to a dog right now. If you have an older dog you think you may like to crate perhaps you are giving a new home to an older animal from a refuge shelter you can still happily use a dog crate as a bed.
