  In the past couple articles here on the blog, I have talked about whether or not it is a good idea to crate-train your dog (for most dogs, it is), and what steps you can take to carry out the crate-training process effectively.  But before you can begin crate-training your dog, you need to actually purchase a crate.  There are so many different kinds of dog crates.  How do you go about choosing the right crate for your dog?   Size   First off, you need to think about dimensions.  There are small crates, medium crates, and big crates. ..  - Read More

Does Your Dog Need A Crate?

New dog owners are sometimes baffled by the concept of dog crates.  You might look at a dog crate and think, “I wouldn’t want to be penned up inside a cage.  Why on earth would my dog?”  You might even make the assumption that dog crates are cruel.  The reality though is that you are not a dog, and a canine is not a human.  Dogs have a natural instinct to den, and many canines sleep for up to 16 hours a day.  For a dog, a crate can be a territorial refuge, a cozy little spot that feels like..  - Read More
