Your Guide To Buying a Dog Crate

By Yehudah Posnick

    If you are a dog owner, you are familiar with your pet's habits. Dogs naturally seek some sort of private shelter—a den. If you don't have a backyard where you can build a doghouse, you might consider purchasing a dog crate. It's bigger than a dog kennel, but smaller than a dog house. This way, your dog can have a room for himself, where he can feel more secure. (It's also good to give them a sense of a having a home, especially when they are young, so that they will try to keep clean.) Here is a guide to some of the best dog crates on the market. 

    Soft crates: Soft crates typically have a steel frame with a soft nylon cover. The steel frame opens and spreads out the nylon cover. The frame then clicks in place. The padded cover adds to the dog's comfort.

    Steel Crates: These crates are a simple wire frame model, with a tray at the bottom. These are clearly a cheaper, no-frills dog crate. You'll have to buy a mat to pad the bottom of the crate. But this is probably the best for toilet training your dog, since it's the easiest to clean. Also, puppies have a habit of wanting to chew at things. It might be better to have a wire-frame crate at first, so that he won't damage it by chewing on it.

    Travel crates: Some crates are so portable, they can serve as a kennel as well. You can transport the dog in them. They are made without any sharp protruding parts, which might injure the dog when traveling.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Easy to move: Some dog crates have special features to make them easy to move from room to room. For example, they might be on wheels and have a pull handle.

    • Easy to assemble: Some crates have a collapsible steel frame. “Assembly” is no more than just pulling out the steel frame until its parts click in place. Take note of how easy it is to assemble the frame. Most will say that they require no special tools for assembly.

    • Doors: Some dog crates have a number of doors to them—1, 2, or even 4 doors. Some even feature a door that lifts open, like a garage door.

    • Crate cover: A crate cover slips over a dog crate, so that the dog can sleep in total darkness. That's especially useful in crates that are a simple wire frame.

    • Crate capacity: It's important to look at the weight tolerance of the crate. Crates are usually sorted according to the breed of dog and their average weight. There are dog crates that are intended for dogs up to 30 pounds, some up to 70 pounds, and some even up to 90 pounds. A 90-pound capacity crate would be necessary for the big breeds of dogs: German Shepherds, Labradors, Golden Retrievers. Also pay attention to the strength of the crate's material. If you have an aggressive, active dog, you'll want a durable crate to be able to confine it.

    • Toilet Training: Some dog crates has pans to toilet train, or “housebreak” your dog. This is ideal for puppies, because then they get used to a routine of where to go to relieve themselves.

    • Mat and pad: Some crates also have a mat on the floor. The padding makes it more comfortable and warm for the dog, and the mat helps you clean the crate (you just have to clean the mat). You could also supply the dog with a bed—some crates are big enough for that.

    • Pouches: Some dog crates also have pouches for dog toys, leashes, and other accessories.
