It also keeps your home from becoming a mess while you are away. Dog crates help with training the new dog or puppy. A crate is usually the safest place for a dog to be. A dog crate can be bought in different sizes. Dogs belonging to different breeds vary in sizes and hence, crates come in different sizes too. For example, a German shepherd or a Saint Bernard would require an extra large dog crate. There are many types of crates available today including the medium crate, large crate and the extra large crate.
If your dog whines or barks while in its crate, you must neither yell or pound on the crate, nor let the dog out the former will simply scare and confuse the dog, while the latter rewards its bad behavior. Be firm, but loving at all times. By maintaining a positive and consistent course of training, your dog will soon come to understand its dog crate for what it is a cozy private space to call its own. A good quality crate should last through the lifetime of your dog, serving to keep its occupant safe and warm and secure throughout many happy years.
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.
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.
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.
