Liza Cobb. Dog Crates. February 04th , 2018.
The option to secure ones dog in a confined space at night, in the car, or simply whenever its convenient is a great convenience. Dogs, too, seem to enjoy the security and comfort of a dog crate once accustomed to them. When shopping for a dog crate, dog owners have many choices to make size, brand, and design all play a part in choosing the perfect dog crate. The most common crates are a simple plastic shell with a metal grated door. However, there are also a wide range of soft dog crates, made from fabric on a lightweight metal frame.
Check out the wickerlook versions, or the very upmarket Bauhaus, and you will never think of crate and cage in the same sentence again. If you want a dog crate for travelling by airplane you will need one which is approved by the airlines. These will generally be molded plastic, and are lightweight and portable. Look for a crate which has a carry handle and which you can collapse for storage when you get back home. Always check with the airline you intend to travel with, as their regulations may vary.
Along with being convenient travel options, they are convenient and spacious for pets. These crates are attractive, durable, and of a high quality. They are also rust proof and are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Portable dog crates may be permitted in air travel and are a necessity in a number of hotels. Dog crates are the best options to kennel your dog especially when you are away at work or if you go out on errands such as shopping. They keep your dog safe at times when it is not possible for you to have a watch on him.
There are many types to choose from today. Among so many choices, stainless steel still remain very popular. Dogs get nervous in dark, poorlyventilated crates. Steel offer the highest amount of light and the best air flow. They are not as flexible as some of the other crates on the market, but having a welllit, wellventilated crate can offset any flexibility issues. Dogs feel more secure when they can see what is going on around them, when they dont feel boxed in. Thats where stainless steel have a definite advantage.
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.
