The Essentials of Tips – 101

Basic Information about Dog Crates

Dog crates come in two basic types, one is the wire crate and the other is hard plastic crate. Depending on why you need a crate for your dog, these two types of crates are actually both good. Both types can be broken down or taken apart and put back together easily and each would cost more or less the same, so these will not be your deciding factors in choosing your crate. In instances when you take your dog to training or somewhere around in your locality, the wire crate would be more portable.

Hard plastic crates are more preferred if you will be flying with your dog on a place, and this should be airline-approved crate too. Be aware that airlines are very strict in allowing what crates on the plane for the safety of the canines. First of all, they do not accept wire crates because of the possibility of being easily bended during the flight that could harm a dog. Generally, most plastic crates are approved by the airlines, but to make sure, look for this approval label or statement. The features of hard plastic crates are with a wire grill as door for your dog to see outside and have more air coming in, plus ventilation holes for further air circulation. Both crates are safe enough for dogs not to easily escape.

During dog events or training classes, using of wire crates is the better option on how to bring your dog. Wire crates are good choice because of its more open feature that allows your dog to see more outside and not feeling left out of the activity. Since wire plastics can be crushed more easily during accidents, they cannot provide much protection to your dog and this is one disadvantage of the type. Both types of crates are good though if you are just using it at home for your dog to sleep and hang out.
