Dog Crates. Saturday , February 03rd , 2018 - 14:25:39 PM
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.
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.
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.
