How important are Dog Crates?

Many seem to ask the old-age question of "how important are dog crates?" and questions such as "are they inhumane?" These are very reasonable questions to ask. While many crates for dogs exist it's important to first understand the importance of owning the proper dog crate and to make sure that what you're buying serves a major purpose or a need. While there are numerous depictions of dogs in adoption clinics sitting in Metal Cages, that doesn't mean that Metal Cages and Soft Folding Crates aren't important when used inhumanely and for a specific intended purpose.

When using dog crates it's important to limit the time spent inside and always ensure there's plenty of ventilation inside either through rivets or holes or with plenty or mesh ventilation. For many dog owners whom are also parents to children dog crates are instrumental for providing a space or living quarters provide a sense of home for your pet. Dogs, like children like to feel a sense of stability and they certainly need a place to sleep and walk in and out of, for some dog owners is a bed and for others it's a dog crate as well. The more spaces your dog becomes familiar with, the more likely they'll feel as if they have a free-range of movement in areas around your home, while this may take proper training, for most, such locations and areas to dogs actually become quite natural to them. It's always important to always unzip an entrance to the crate so that they feel they aren't limited to that space as prolonged containment can be detrimental to their mental health.


Dog crates are also extremely important when traveling places both in a car or when traveling outdoors when camping, picnicking or traveling to others homes and unfamiliar places. Dogs are animals that feel safe in surroundings their familiar with therefore in order to limit separation anxiety it's instrumental to make sure they have a space they're familiar with and it doesn't hurt to carry their toys when traveling so that they feel more comfortable. The same applies to babies and children when their toys are taken away from them for any such reason, they feel comfort where-ever they travel such as their teddy bear or puzzle. A crate is designed to do the same.


Crates are available in a wide variety of types therefore it's important to learn more about how to choose for the right type of crate. For example if you're constantly on-the-go you might be inclined to purchasing a wire-framed dog crate that's lighter in weight and collapsible than say a crate with a metal folding mechanism.


There are many different purposes and it's always a wise idea to read the description and make sure you're buying the right size and type. When used properly crates provide a wide variety of benefits that make pet ownership more enjoyable for you and your family.
