At first, I wasn’t sure if we would be pro or con dog crates, but the dog crate has turned into a very positive part of Kobi’s life, so we definitely recommend them. Kobi’s dog crate has become his apartment in our apartment. First, we put the crate in a good spot in our apartment so Kobi can still look out and see what’s going on in a variety of places. Secondly, we feed our dog in his crate and it’s a place to him to escape to when he’s tired. We made his crate comfortable and have it covered with a blanket on all three sides and the top.
As stated by the Humane Society, “crate training uses a dog's natural instincts as a den animal. A wild dog's den is his home, a place to sleep, hide from danger, and raise a family. The crate becomes your dog's den, an ideal spot to snooze or take refuge during a thunderstorm.” This is exactly explains how Kobi’s dog crate works in our home. Of course, we also used the crate to help house-train our dog. Kobi was a bit slow to adapt to only “going” outside, but crate training helped a lot and he’s housebroken now.
If you're looking for a great dog crate, there are a variety of options from:
Metal Dog Crate
Metal Dog Crate
We have a Double-Door Folding Metal Dog Crate. What's great about this is that if you move your furniture around (as we occasionally do), this gives you two options on how your dog might enter the crate. This metal crate also comes with an adjustable divider panel that you can use to change the size of the interior until your puppy grows to its full size, which is super helpful when house-training your dog. These metal dog crates often come in various colors.
Modern Dog Den
If you're looking for a dog crate, but want it to have more style, check out various Dog Crates, Dens and Houses. These range in style from modern to more traditional. Some actually look like a coffee table or side table.
Travel Crates are often made out of lighter fabrics or plastic so they are easy to travel with. Some of these are made to fold and carry.
