Dog Crates. Thursday , February 01st , 2018 - 12:58:59 PM
Various crate designs are available, with different qualities. The most common are either welded mesh cages comprised of metal grates for sides, with a removable tray in the bottom for easier cleaning; or, rigid plastic crates, usually with clips that attach the top half to the bottom. Both are sturdy and longlasting designs, but are also bulky and difficult to move. Some metal crates can be disassembled or collapsed, but even these tend to be less convenient than the third type: softsided dog crates, made of nylon or other fabric stretched over a metal frame.
A wire crate is a good option if youre buying a dog crate for a bed. It is a good idea to get a crate bumper for comfort and safety. Many dogs also prefer a covering over the back and perhaps the sides of the crate to give them a greater sense of privacy. This doesnt have to be expensive: we have a blanket draped over our dogs crate. Using a dog crate for a bed doesnt mean that you cant be stylish as well. There are many crates that are both comfortable for your dog and will fit with any décor.
A dog crate should be big enough for the dog to stand up, turn around, and otherwise move with ease. Unless you want to buy multiple crates throughout the life of your dog, youll need to buy one that will fit its fullgrown size, even if youre getting the dog as a puppy. The tricky part about this is that you dont want the dog to have more room than it actually needs, at least not once it has outgrown the puppy stage. However, setting up dividers to reduce the space of the crate isnt difficult, so err on the side of too large rather than too small.
