Dog Crates. Monday , February 05th , 2018 - 16:31:27 PM
I have found my dog will happily chew her rawhide bone as she is dropping off to sleep in her crate and again when she wakes. Especially first thing in the mornings this can give me a much appreciated extra fifteen minutes of sleep. It is a good idea to give your dog some treats when you put him in his crate, to reinforce positive feelings: a little snack before he settles down to sleep would go down well. If your dog wears a collar make sure you remove it before he goes into the crate. Dogs have choked to death when their collar or Id tags have caught on the crates bars.
Its important to remember to keep the crating experience positive. If you purchase steel crates for your pet, you want them to enjoy being in them. Use positive reinforcement and never use the cage as a form of punishment. These types of punishments cause animals undue stress and negate the positive benefits that you purchased the dog crate for in the first place. Positive reinforcement is the best way to work on crate training or any training with your dog. Most dog owners find dog crates to be an indispensable piece of equipment.
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.
