Choosing Dog Crates

Monday, January 4th, 2010

Choosing the correct crate for your dog is very important as the dog may have to spend considerable amounts of time in one. There are a few factors to consider. This article discusses them.

How much room do you have for the crate? You don’t want to be tripping over it. Most people keep their dogs crate in their living room or family room. Some opt for the master bedroom. Ask yourself if you will be re-painting any time soon. If so, go with a neutral colored crate. The nice thing about current dog crates is that they come in fashion colors! Everything from baby pink, to bright orange to neutrals such as khaki.

So what size do I buy? The rule of thumb is to give your dog enough room to sit without hitting his head. You will also want to give him enough room to lay down and stretch. The bottom line is, give him space, but not too much space. If a dog has too much room in his crate, he will use his crate as a potty.

Look for a dog crate with accessories such as name tags, fleece pads, or pockets for treats and toys. Some come with coordinating carry cases for treats and toys, in leu of a pocket. Other extras include, matching carry cases for collapsible crates. Quality construction is something to keep in mind. Soft crates should have hidden steel hinges for durability. Depending upon your lifestyle, water resistant construction may be something to consider.

If your dog is a chewer, a wire dog crate may be the best option for him, as a soft dog crate would only get destroyed. If you prefer a wire crate for a dog that is not a chewer, invest in a dog crate cover that doubles as bedding for the crate. This not only provides your dog with comfort, it will give him security as well. If you are on the go, consider a collapsible dog crate. Collapsible dog crates come in soft and wire construction.
