Question by Corinne: What's the difference between a kennel and a ?
I learned from the dictionary that a crate is a wicker basket, then what is a dog crate? Isn't it the same as a dog house?

Best answer:

Answer by Pit Bully Love
A DOG crate is a wire, or plastic crate or kennel.

Some people consider a “Kennel” to be the same thing as a crate (Dog)

A Kennel can also be a large, outdoor “run”

    kennel comes in many sizes, made of wire, normally for much activity for the dog

    crate is anything that is just a size bigger then your dog, plastic or wire – sleeping or house training

    I think the term is used interchangeably, they are the same thing.

    A dog crate is wire and is usually in shape of a square and very open and a kennel is usually plastic and rounded but not very open. A dog crate is meant to stay in place, while the kennel is usually used to transport a pet.

    • No it all!
    • September 19, 2012

    HAHA well, they are more or less interchangeable. To contradict what I just said, a dog kennel can be a place to take your dog to be looked after for a while. A crate is nothing more than a sturdy box to put a dog in. Could be metal, plastic, or any other material.

    It really is quite confusing – in the US a kennel can be the plastic or wire “box” the dog stays in when inside the house, in the car etc. but it is also the kennel run that some people have outside that has wire mesh and is usually about 6 foot high. A dog house has nothing to do with a kennel or a crate, but the may be one inside the dog run.

    In shelters and boarding kennels you also talk about kennels when describing the runs the dog are in, even if they are inside a building. And the boarding kennel is the whole place, consisting of several kennels/runs.

    Even more confused?

    Dog “crate” can be anything portable.
    Dog “kennel” is not portable and is usually found outdoors or it could be somewhere you can board (leave your dog for someone to care for) while you are on vacation.

    A dog crate is wire, plastic, wood etc.. Plastic crates are better. The term Kennel can also mean crate.. But it’s generally a fenced run outside. Different areas, use different terms regularly.

    • La Comtesse
    • September 19, 2012

    In the UK (or at least my part of it), a kennel is made of wood or plastic and is usually an outside shelter. I think the US terminology is ‘doghouse’. It can also be a structure of individual outdoor runs and shelters for many dogs. A crate would generally be perceived as a travel-cage for transporting a dog when outside the house; crate-training whereby a metal or plastic cage or crate is used for indoor housetraining is fairly novel here.

    Essentially, the words are interchangeable.
