Dog Crates and Kennels

While you might be surprised to learn this, pet crates and kennels can actually be effective tools that do far more than just contain a pet. Rather than making your dog feel restricted, a good crate or kennel offers domesticated animals a chance to live in something that’s like the den they would have lived in back when they were still wild. Housebreaking pets can even be a faster process when using a crate, though you have to make sure the one you get is the right size for your animal.

Custom Dog Kennels

Height and length are the most important considerations when investing in a dog crate. Custom dog kennels are made especially for your animal’s specifications. They’re made to match the height from their front feet to the top of their head as well as the length from nose to tail. Dogs with thicker tails sometimes need extra space to make sure that they don’t feel confined, so those who order a custom kennel will want to keep this in mind.

Fortunately, there are countless pre-built options on the market that should work every bit as well for those who want to make sure that their dogs are receiving the best possible treatment.

Wire Pet Crates

At one point, your options were rather limited when it came to dog crates. Pet supply companies have created a number of different ones that should solve the needs of almost every pet owner, however. Double door dog crates, for instance, are made from professional steel and come with a pan that makes it easy to keep them clean.

Crate beds can help to convert existing wire crates into more comfortable locations for your animal.

Metal Dog Crates and Boxes

Just like crates, metal boxes and pet carriers have evolved quite a bit from their humble beginnings. You’ll now be able to find 4-panel pet gates that almost barely resemble the metal dog crates or boxes of old. You can also find options that are made partially from wood and partially from metal.

Traditional single compartment dog boxes have become increasingly sophisticated in their own right. These are designed for those who have working dogs and need to make sure that they get them to a site in a way that’s safe and healthy for both the animals and any spectators who might around them.

Dog Crate Sizing

In general, crates should be around 2-4 inches taller than your dog. They should also be 2-4 inches longer than your dog is, nose to tail. Bigger doesn’t always necessarily mean better, though you do want your dog to have at least some room to feel comfortable. Owners of dogs with healthy-sized tails might want to add an inch or two in each direction to help them feel at least relatively free. Too much room can hurt your chances of proper crate training, however.
