How to Choose the Right Dog Crate Covers
Dog Crate covers are important dog products to have whether your dog has an outdoor crate or an indoor dog crate. At times every dog needs to be confined to a crate or crate, and whether you’re traveling, leaving your pet at home for long periods of time, or you choose to have your pet live in an outdoor crate all the time, you want him to be safe and comfortable.
Obviously, covers on outdoor crate will keep your pet safe from the elements, but covers on indoor crate and crates are just as important. A cover on an indoor dog crate or crate imitates the den used by our dogs’ ancestors for shelter and protection. In an uncovered crate or crate, your dog may feel vulnerable and anxious; this is simply not what their instincts dictate is right.
When your crate is uncovered, he is confined but not hidden, as his genetic make-up tells him he must be.
One way to alleviate your dog’s anxiety, as well as to protect and control him, is to create that den-like atmosphere with a crate cover. It may make your dog nervous in the beginning, so you’ll have to take the proper steps to get him used to having his dog crate covered, but once you do, he will be comfortable and content in his den-like sanctuary.
It’s actually very easy to get your dog used to a crate cover. Simply put the cover on for a short period of time, maybe just a few minutes, and then take it off. Everyday leave it on for longer periods of time, and before you know it your dog will love being in a covered crate.
If your dog has to spend a lot of time outside, or you choose to have him live outside all the time, you need to be extra cautious of his safety. Dogs should never be chained or tethered in any way.
