I have seen a number of people who like to have the dog crate out on the patio and have it be their only place to walk their dog at one time. I think this is actually a fantastic idea. The dog crate can be a great conversation starter with your dog and the crate should be a safe place to come and go during the day. If you plan on bringing your dog in at night, you could even put the crate in a bedroom closet to make it more private.
Yes, it would be great if we all had our own little dog-crate-like spaces in our houses. Unfortunately we don’t all have that much space. This is a very small percentage of the total dog population, but it’s still a major issue. The dog crate could be a great solution for smaller households. The only downside is that you would have to have a dog to use it, and it would probably cost a lot of money to buy a crate.
Although that is a question that I haven’t really thought about, I do think that a dog crate would be a great solution for anyone who doesn’t have a dog, as well. The crate would be smaller than the average dog crate, making it very easy to use. It could even be made of metal to provide added protection, reducing the risk of a dog jumping out. And as a bonus, you would be able to keep your dog indoors.
I’m sure that many people feel uncomfortable about using a dog crate, but I think one can use it with a little courage and a little bit of common sense. The fact is that people don’t own a dog. They don’t own a dog for any of the reasons you listed. For many, it’s either an emotional one or a financial one. For many, it’s the latter, but not for all.
If you plan on owning a dog, I would highly recommend considering a crate for your dog. No, I’m not suggesting you put your dog in a little cardboard box. I’m suggesting you make it a whole house.
If you plan to allow your dog to roam the house without you, you might want to put a dog bed in it, too.
In a dog crate, your dog will not be in a constant state of anxiety or fear. He will still be able to sense your presence, but he’ll be more alert to it, too. And dogs love peace and quiet. So he’ll have lots of time to himself. And if you’ve got a cat, you can also put in a box, too. If you have a dog and a cat, you can put in a dog bed, too.
If you plan to open the crate, you don’t have to be afraid of your dog’s claws or teeth. All you have to do is keep the door closed. The crate itself will keep your dog from banging the door shut.
The problem is if you get out of the crate, you know the dogs could grab you. But you can just let them loose. But your dog can have a much harder time getting out of a crate than you could.
This is a very good idea. The problem is, you can’t open the crate if you’re in it. And it doesn’t matter whether your dogs actually know it’s there. It’s just a convenience thing.
