Indoor dog kennels are typically made from either wire or plastic and are much smaller than kennels used outdoors because they serve a slightly different purpose. Kennels used indoors are made to provide a space for your dog which it feels is its own, yet it can also keep it secure and out of trouble if the need be as well. They are also great for when you have guests who don’t like dogs, or when having a dog running around the house just isn’t convenient or appropriate. Because in the wild dogs are den living animals, having a space where they can go when stressed, anxious, or just looking for a snooze makes them feel more comfortable, confident, and happy.
