Get the Best Ideas about Dog Crates Dog crates come in two basic types, one is the wire crate and the other is hard plastic crate. These two kinds of crates are good choices and what would matter is why you need a crate for your dog. Since both types of crates would cost similar, and can be broken down or taken apart and put back together easily, these features will not be the basis of your decision in choosing which one you will get. The wire crate on the other hand will be more portable if you are bringing your pet to training classes or just going around the locality. Know that hard plastic crate is the choice when flying your dog on a plane and make sure that it is an airline-approved crate. Know that for the safety of the dogs, airlines are very picky when it comes to allowing crates on the plane. Not favoured to be used as crate during flights are wire crates because the material can easily bend and might lead to harming a dog. Hard plastic crates are usually airline-approved, but it is advisable that you look for this statement or label to make sure. Hard plastic crates come with ventilation holes for good air circulation and wire grill as the door to allow your dog to peep outside and have more air to come in the cage. Dogs cannot easily escape from both cages. Wire crates are the better choice when your activity with your dog would involve training classes or other dog events. Since wire crates are more open, your dog can see more outside it while waiting around and the dog can feel being a part of what is going on. The downside though of a wire crate is that it does not provide more protection, as the hard plastic crates, during accidents since it can be crushed more easily. Both types of crates are good though if you are just using it at home for your dog to sleep and hang out.

Depending on the kind of breed your dog is, crate manufacturers will suggest the best size for your dog. Note that if your crate is too big for your dog, he or she will not be too safe when your travel in your car. Choosing a dog crate is actually a personal preference, except when riding on a plane wherein you are obligated to use a hard plastic cage.
