Did you know that using a dog crate can actually calm your puppy? It's true, by giving your puppy a crate to rest or sleep in, you have given him a den-like environment that comes from a natural instinct that is inbreed in your puppy.
In the wild they look for places that are "den-like" to sleep in. You'll notice that when you start shopping around for a kennel that there is one to fit just about every size of puppy dog.
Whether you are looking for a kennel to transport your dog on the airlines or for potty training puppies, there's one out there just for you!
It's important to buy a crate from a leading manufacturer so you can be assured that you will receive only a top quality dog kennel.
Ok, so yes there are cheaper brands out there, but you will find that the cheaper kennel is very flimsy and will not take too much moving around or collapsing.
If your budget allows, purchase the better brand so your kennel will last for many years. There are all sizes and styles of dog kennels specifically designed to fit any dog from the largest to the smallest canine.
Now I would bet that you probably think of your home as your castle, your sanctuary, a safe place to be, a calming retreat, right?. Well, why not give your dog this same comfort by selecting the proper crate and showing your pet that he has his own little sanctuary... his crate.
Crate training is an important part of your puppies life because there are many situations where kenneling your pet may become necessary. This is another reason for crate training puppies early in their life.
Even if your pet lives mostly inside your home, don't underestimate the usefulness of a kennel. When traveling in a car, your pet will travel safer if he is confined in a dog crate and you will not be distracted by a jumping dog while driving.
And in the event of an accident the dog crate will provide a certain level of protection and keep a scared dog from running away in a crazy situation. At some time in your puppies life he may have a medical condition where using a crate will be necessary.
There might also be times when your veterinarian may recommend keeping your puppy confined so your pet's activity can be reduced due to recovery from surgery or some other condition that needs to be monitored.
And then there are those social situations where kenneling is necessary. You may be having a party where you need to keep your puppy safe and out of trouble.
Sometimes you might have a friend over who is fearful about dogs or in the worse case scenario you may have a dog that is aggressive to strangers.
A dog that can stay quietly in a crate can make the situation easier and you a bit calmer too.
