Dog Crates. Wednesday , February 07th , 2018 - 16:42:57 PM
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.
They might also be safer in a car accident than other types. The door is a squeeze latch which offers good security and onehanded operation. The plastic makes it easier to clean. There are some disadvantages with a plastic dog crate. Not all plastic crates can be taken apart when not used so they take up space. Since the crate has openings near the top the dog has limited sight to see things going on around him. Aluminium and wire dog crates are very similar. The aluminium crate can be either fixed or folding. These crates are light weight. When constructed properly they can be very sturdy and they dont rust.
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.
