Petra Hines. Dog Crates. January 31st , 2018.
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.
As mentioned above there are advantages and disadvantage to the different types of crates (plastic, softsided, wire) offered. Think about how the crate will be used can help with your choice of homes for your dog. Crate training has become standard practice for many dog owners by this time. Although the common belief that dogs have a natural den instinct is not, in fact, true, they do benefit from an exclusive and secure space to call their own. Dog crates allow owners to confine their dogs in an environment that quickly becomes familiar and reassuring to the dog.
The wire kennel as the name suggests is built in wire and offers excellent ventilation. They come with either one or two doors. It is very important to choose the right dog crate. Large crates usually suit large dogs. Breeds that need extra large dog crates are Afghan, Akita, Alaskan malamute, Bernese mountain dog, Bloodhounds, Briar, Bull Mastiff and Doberman. You can find a variety of attractive designs in extra large crates in the market. Your skill lies in choosing the right crate depending on the specific requirements of your pet.
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.
Some of us initially balk at the idea of putting a puppy or even a grown dog we love very much into what can be perceived as a cage. However, used properly your dogs crate will come to be seen by him as a place of comfort and privacy: a place of his own to go to when he wants to sleep, or just wants timeout. There are many types of dog crates, and variations within the types. When looking for a crate for your puppy or dog remember this will be their home. Take some time to really search for the right type and size that would fit the dogs needs and yours.
