Dog crates or dog Cages call them what you will but over the past decade or so they have become increasing popular with dog owners due to the way a dog crate can really make life easier by facilitating support in the training and control of your dog or puppy when you need to be focused on something else. Obvious really but worth every penny.

Putting Your Dog in a Crate. Cruel Deed or Sensible Need?
Human cannot imagine themselves in dog crates, especially for longer period.  However, when it comes to dogs, the case is completely different (please note: dog crates and cages are the same thing). You might have noticed that dogs choose a quiet corner or place of the room to rest and relax like behind a chair, under the coffee table etc. When wild, animals like wild dogs and wolves make dens or burrows to sleep in it is instinctula to need to feel protected and so our dogs like to sleep and relax in a place where they can be safe and secure and enjoy being alone. This same feeling and environment for dogs can be achieved through the use of dog crates.

Using dog crates: Some Key Reasons
Proper and thoughtful use of dog crate can help your dog deal with problems, particularly those that are associated with fear of strangers, destructive behaviour, house training. They are helpful to deal with visitors, who fear dogs and carry your dog while travelling.

Where to place dog crates?
The idea of using a crate is to make it the dog’s own little bedroom. So it would be a good idea to put the crate in a place where it can stay as a permenant place. It is also good idea to place the dog crate where the room temperature is moderate and away from draughts. Dogs prefer to have their crates in a place, where your they can hear and see you.

What do I look for in dog crateS?
Whichever type of crate you get it should be large enough to allow your dog to stretch out flat on his side without being cramped and be able to sit up without hitting his head on the top.

When to start the crate training?
Even older dogs can be trained, but it is best to train them at early age, when your pet is a puppy. Older dogs take little longer to get crate trained.

How long should dog crates be used?
The crate should be used till your puppy gets ten to twelve months old. This will enable your puppy to get habituated of the crate. Once he get used to it, you’ll no more need to train him. Continue crating when the dog is becoming adult. With time, your dog will probably enjoy having his own space. 
You can not just use crates to train or carry puppies, but to solve or deal the behavioural problems of adolescent and mature dogs. Training older dogs to use crate is harder and demand more patience. If you travel a lot, then using crate for your dog is the best idea.

How lond does it take for dogs to get used to using dog crates?
Locking your dog in a crate and hoping he will train himself, won’t work. If you want the concept to work, you need to give, time and effort with lots of patience. You have to successfully introduce the crate to dog as its home, a special place where he/she can have some privacy. Here are the guidelines:

         You can motivate your dog to enter in the crate, by taking help of some special gifts. It can be a good beginning for him, for example, if you place a toy inside the crate, it would like to have toy, which will make it enter the crate to retrieve it.

         It will hardly take two or three days to make the dog get used to the crate to rest in it. As the dog starts to go into crate, place the toy farther than its present position.

         As soon as the dog sleeps slowly close the crate’s door and only open when the dog wakes. Once your dog is awake, open the crate ad praise your dog or give a treat for being in the crate.

         Gradually prepare a time cycle to open and close the crate door. This will allow you to stay in the room, while your dog resting quietly or falling asleep in the closed crate. Once your dog gets comfortable with this routine, you can leave the house for a while without your dog and return immediately.

         If your dog is okay and doesn’t do any barking or crying while being inside crate, leave it for a longer period (three minutes, seven minutes, half hour, or so on).

         Try to follow the routine and gradually increase the time of the crate routine. Fix a schedule of yourself like leaving the house for office or market.

What should I do after acclimatization?

         Keep your dog inside the crate for maximum period of two hours on regular basis.
