The Proper Way To Use A Dog Crate

Saturday, June 11, 2016

DOGFANCYCRATEA pet carrier or crate is a portable kennel just large enough to contain the dog that it is intended for. It is made of either plastic or metal. When we use the term “crating”,” we mean the practice of using the kennel for training purposes.

You must understand what the crate means to your dog. Dogs are normally considered den creatures. So the dog crate is considered it’s den. If it is properly introduced, it becomes a safe haven for your dog. It should never be used as a means of punishment. The crate should be kept around other people not stuck in a basement or small room where there are no human beings. Have your dog sleep in the crate during the night and feed you dog in the crate. Dogs like to be around people so make sure he is not kept in his crate during the day if possible. The crate must be large enough for your dog to stand and turn around it. A puppy should never spend more than 3 or 4 hours a day in his crate. An adult dog should not spend more than 8 hours in the crate. Make sure that the crate is always kept clean and not in a damp, cold area. If you use the crate correctly, it will always be a safe haven for your dog.

Remember, your pets count!
