What Are The Different Dog Crates?

4 puppies

Your and your pet’s safety and comfort is most important when travelling particularly in a vehicle. When driving, pets can often distract you and other drivers following behind, when pets are allowed to roam freely around the vehicle which can lead to accidents.

Crates are ideal to help protect drivers and passengers in cases of sudden emergency stops and try to prevent injury to beloved pets by not being flung into and around the vehicle.

Crates can be used at home providing your pet with their own space, and particularly where there may be two or more pets.

Perfect to take with you on weekend breaks and dog-friendly holidays, doubling up as an overnight bed creating their own familiar space whilst in new surroundings. 

Crates come in various designs and finishes with larger collapsible shapes that can be used as day pens for a new puppy or kitten litter, can be used outside for rabbits as a extra temporary day pen that can be moved around the garden, and to secure your pet in an area for security. Crates have become an invaluable and useful dog need.

8 TIPS Buying The Best Dog Crate 
  • 1. Dogs should have room to be able to stand up, turn around and sit down, in the crate, otherwise, they will be cramped. 
  • 2. There are crates specially designed for hatchback and sloping shaped boots. It’s important to measure the area where the crate is going to be used carefully before purchasing.  
  • 3. Crates are generally offered for sale in three sizes, small, medium and large, so it is important to check the size of crate for your breed requirements. 
  • 4. If buying a crate for a puppy, it may be wise to consider buying a size larger if your puppy is expected to grow considerably in months.
  • 5. Dog crate accessories include covers which can provide your dog with a feeling of safety and security when in an enclosed environment and help to prevent draughts. 
  • 6. Folding crates are multi-functional, can be used inside your home and the car and useful for taking on weekends away and holidays.
  • 7. Crates for pet air travel have to be on the airlines approval list so it is important to check and meet your airlines requirements before buying and flying with your pet. They will refuse to fly your pet if you do not meet their requirements.
  • 8. Complete by providing a thin quick drying mattress or duvet inside on the crate base for your pets comfort.
