Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is it better for a dog to sleep in a dog crate?
Many people use dog crates for crate training their pups, setting boundaries, or containing them for their comfort/safety. A dog crate can be different from a dog kennel because a dog kennel can be larger. Finding the best dog crate for your pup can create a safe spot for them to sleep in or relax.
How long can dogs stay in a crate?
Dog crates, sometimes called cages or kennels, are a contained area that a dog can reside in for short bursts of time. These containers are big enough to hold a dog but small enough that the dog isn’t roaming around.
How big should a dog crate be?
If you have a puppy, get a dog crate size that will fit them when they’ve grown to their adult size, and add a divider to make it smaller. If the dog crate is too big, they might try and use the bathroom at one end. However, you want to ensure your dog crate has enough room for your pet to comfortably stand, sit and turn around.
What should go in a dog crate?
Your dog’s crate should be a comfortable and comforting place. Try a crate mat/liner to make it more comfortable, since most dog crate options have a plastic tray at the bottom. Make sure to observe your pup’s behavior in their dog crate to ensure the crate and anything you put in it are suitable for your pet.
