Deanna Walters. Dog Crates. January 31st , 2018.
These crates are made of either plastic or wire. The plastic dog crates are used to transport dogs from one place to the other with ease, especially by air. Today people use crates at homes too as shelters for their pets. Extra large crates comes in tan or hunter green colors. The plastic crate is a 3 piece unit. The top piece has holes on them facilitating air supply. The bottom solid piece is sturdier than the other parts and the third part of the crate is the wired door. The bottom pieces are connected with screws.
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.
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.
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.
