Crating is a popular because it is convenient. But this inappropriate practice deprives dogs of the opportunity to engage in some of the most basic activities, such as walking around, stretching out to relax, and looking out a window. Obviously, it prevents them from relieving themselves or indicating the need to relieve themselves as well.
A Dog Crate Is a Cage Is a Prison | PETA
Though we wish we could take our pets with us everywhere we go, we often times can’t. Dog crates give your pet a place for himself where he can retreat to and feel safe and comforted. Whether it be for when you’re away from home, or just a place to sleep, dog kennels give your dog a safe space of his own. By starting crate training early on, your dog will learn to enjoy his time in a crate without feeling distressed or panicked. Chewy offers a variety of crate mats that allow your dog to be more comfortable and make his cage feel homier. For some dogs, pens may be used as an alternative to crates, or can be used as a supervised play area. Whether used indoors or outdoors, dog pens create a fenced in area for play without the tight confinement of a cage. If you have an area of your home that your pet should not be visiting and you would like to restrict access from, maybe an in-home gate would be right for you! Our range of gates allows you to choose a design that will match your home’s décor and fit your needs.

Sam’s club has a great many options for crates and carriers for your dog. Many people want to travel with their dogs, but don’t want to use conventional crates and carriers that will keep their pet confined. Leaving your dog behind is an option, but you may still need a crate to keep him safe, and will probably need someone to help out by looking in on your pet. If your dog loves to go for a ride in the car, but you don’t love what happens to your car afterwards, go to Sam’s Club for rear seat protectors, door protectors and cargo protectors. These affordably priced items will allow your dog to travel the same way you do without tearing up your car’s interior. For smaller dogs, a travel bed can provide comfort and convenience, and when you arrive at your destination, retractable gates can limit your dog to safe areas.
