Choosing A Crate For Your Dog

There are many reasons why pet dogs should undergo crate training. In fact, it is an essential tool for housetraining, transportation, and eliminating undesirable behaviors. Picking out the right crate for your dog is an important pre-requisite because crates are not created equal. Your dog’s size is a primary consideration; the crate must be spacious enough for your dog to stand up, turn around, lie down comfortably. It should also be big enough to allow a place for the food and water bowls, but small enough not to allow space for a potty area. Choose a crate design that allows proper ventilation. The ventilation openings along the sides or top should be small enough to prevent your pet from sticking his paw through. Some dogs are more comfortable with a wire mesh carrier, especially the ones that are sociable and friendly. Plastic crates are ideal for dogs that are prone to bouts of anxiety or nervousness because the design gives them a greater sense of protection and security. 

Any concerns that you have with your pet’s health and well-being should be brought to the attention of a pet clinic Conyers, GA.
