What to Look for in Dog Cages
When some people think of dog cages, they think of something that is cruel, but the reality is that these are a great way to give your animals the freedom they need without keeping them inside or really limiting their ability to move around. There are some remarkably large and sturdy kennels that are appropriate for all sizes of animals, and they will provide your animal with a certain level of safety as well as the people on the outside.
What Should You Look For?
The first thing that you need to consider when you are looking for dog cages is the size of your animal and the reasonable amount of room that they will need for their health, safety, and security. If you have a larger animal, then it goes without saying that you will need a larger kennel or cage, but you should consider not only the length and width of the structure, but also the height.
What Are They Made Of?
You need to look for good quality dog pens that are made from coated mesh wire and solid framing. You will find some inexpensive products that have bare metal that can not only cut you or your animal, but it can heat up to very hot temperatures when under the sun.
Most cages are simply four walls, but you will also find some that have a floor and a ceiling as well. If you are looking at a cage with a flooring aspect, then you need to make sure that there is sufficient room for drainage and that it is easy to clean.
How Are They Assembled?
Because these are generally very large dog enclosures, you will want to make sure that the ones you are looking at come with all of the needed hardware and sufficient instructions so that you can put it together quickly. Obviously, your animal’s safety is the utmost importance, so it should be simple enough to assemble so that there is no room for error. The last thing that you want is a cage that falls down or allows your animal to escape.
What Type Should You Get?
Remember that your first decision will be the size of the cage, which should be at least 25 percent bigger than your dog, but hopefully much more, and that is if the cage is to be used for short periods of time and usually indoors. If your pet will be spending a lot of time in his or her cage, then you will want to choose one that is larger so that they can get the exercise they need and the freedom that they desire.
There are some crates that are made for indoors, some that are made for outdoors, and those that are designed primarily for training or travel. Before you buy any cage, ensure that your animal will easily fit into it, not just when they are sitting, but also when they are lying down, fully extended. That will give you an idea as to the proper size that you need to buy.
