This makes them popular among those who have limited space in their home or car, and do not use the item on a daily basis. People who take their dogs camping also find soft dog crates useful, as they can be packed easily. The elderly or disabled, or anyone who has difficulty lifting heavy objects, should consider this advantage to a soft dog crate. Similarly, soft dog crates differ from rigid ones in cleaning. Metal or plastic dog crates must be handwashed. Although many offer removable floor pans in case of accidents, these must still be scrubbed clean.
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.
A residual scent left by dog waste may encourage the dog to resoil the crate. Soft dog crates, on the other hand, can typically be disassembled machinewashed. This is generally more convenient than handwashing, although one should keep in mind that fabric is more likely to stain as a result of dog waste than plastic or metal. On that note, aesthetics are one more reason many dog owners prefer soft dog crates. Wire cages have an institutional look that some find unappealing, and plastic models tend to lack style.
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.
These crates are made of either plastic or wire. The plastic dog crates are used to transport dogs from one place to the other with ease, especially by air. Today people use crates at homes too as shelters for their pets. Extra large crates comes in tan or hunter green colors. The plastic crate is a 3 piece unit. The top piece has holes on them facilitating air supply. The bottom solid piece is sturdier than the other parts and the third part of the crate is the wired door. The bottom pieces are connected with screws.
