Liza Cobb. Dog Crates. February 07th , 2018.
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.
Dogs have been the favorite companions of mankind for generations. They have been documented in the Egyptian age and have been faithful hunters and guides for many years. Depending upon a dogs breed and pedigree, a number of people prefer to keep a pet at some point in life. Dogs may be indoor or outdoor pets. In order to keep pets indoors most people prefer wire dog crates, which are considered a practical option. Dog crate is an enclosed box type chamber in which dogs are enclosed for transportation to different areas or dogs are enclosed for security purposes.
These wired crates allow owners to keep an eye on their pets at all times and can be easily adjusted in any motor vehicle and helps keep a pet calm during journeys. Wire crates are simple constructions and eliminate any chances of pets being entangled or hurt. These crates use simple designs that aim at providing comfort and sufficient free space. Wire dog crates are very popular amongst puppies and can be used for years to come. In order to cope with increasing demands and hectic lifestyles, more and more people are choosing to keep pets.
They might also be safer in a car accident than other types. The door is a squeeze latch which offers good security and onehanded operation. The plastic makes it easier to clean. There are some disadvantages with a plastic dog crate. Not all plastic crates can be taken apart when not used so they take up space. Since the crate has openings near the top the dog has limited sight to see things going on around him. Aluminium and wire dog crates are very similar. The aluminium crate can be either fixed or folding. These crates are light weight. When constructed properly they can be very sturdy and they dont rust.
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.
