Almost every dog owner needs a dog crate. They are great for giving your pet a safe place to curl up. You will also need one if you plan to travel with your pet. Dogs in a crate will receive less injuries in a car accident than those without a crate. A dog should never be left alone in a parked car, even if you crack the windows and return quickly. You also do not want to confine your dog in the crate for excessive amounts of time.
Your dog crate should be a place where your dog can escape and have its own space. Dogs are naturally den animals who appreciate a private space. Having a dog crate allows you to create the small private space your dog desires. The crate you choose should be big enough to allow your dog to be comfortable standing and laying in the crate. Always measure your dog prior to purchasing a dog crate. Add three inches to both the height and length to get the right size for your carrier.
When buying a create for a puppy you can purchase a divider panel to make it smaller for now. Potty training a puppy is much easier if you have a dog crate. Puppies will not soil the area where they sleep if they can avoid it. It can also be a great way to keep puppies from destructive behavior when you need to leave puppy home alone.
You can make your dog more comfortable in the crate with the addition of a crate pad. A dog crate pad will also help to protect your dog from crate sores and other injuries. Dog crate pads can make your dog's crate comfortable as well as safe. You want a crate that is allergy and mildew free and machine washable. A soft crate pad will also turn your crate into a cozy den and reduce barking while the dog is in the crate.
