Mavis Shaw. Dog Crates. February 07th , 2018.
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.
A number of crates are available with security door latches, and quick latching systems. These have ample breathing room and do not suffocate dogs during journeys. Double door folding designs are appropriate portable dog crates when pets need to be transported a long way if owners are relocating to a new city or town. A majority of travelers, mobile home and recreational vehicle owners prefer to purchase portable dog crates that can easily be fitted and help reduce anxiety and panic for pets during a journey.
Wire crates purchases are made keeping in mind a pets size. An ideal wire dog crate will have ample room for a pet to move around without any limitations. These crates provide ample ventilation and security for a dog. Wire dog crates are fairly easy to clean and require low maintenance. A majority of these crates are available with long lasting rustproof coats. Wire canine crates are available in a variety of styles in order to accommodate large and small dogs. It is easy to find collapsible and folding models based on the pets needs.
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.
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.
