How to Choose the right Dog Crate Covers
The type of crate cover that you choose will depend on whether your dog has an indoor or outdoor crate.
You will also have to decide what material you want it to be made from, whether you want it to be easily removable (for traveling purposes), and in some cases what color or design you would like it to be.
Indoor crate and dog crate covers
Plastic crate usually have solid walls except for ventilation holes and the door, which is typically made of wire. The material and construction of the crate itself creates a den for the dog, but there are still lights, sounds, smells, and other stimuli that will enter the crate through these small openings and may disturb your pet.
Quite the opposite, crate with wire sides and tops are very open and can create a lot of stress and anxiety for your pet, especially while traveling or when in a new place. A cover for these types of dog crates will help your dog feel more comfortable and ultimately lead to a happier life of a pet.
There are many different types and styles of crate covers available for dog owners who prefer a variety of choices. There are also some important considerations to keep in mind when purchasing one.
For example, will your crate be set up in one place in your house and rarely moved? Or do you intend to break it down to take with you while traveling? The cover on a mobile crate should be made from sturdy material that is simple to put on and take off and doesn’t tear easily, all of which limit the available options.
Your choices in crate covers may be limited if your crate is one you intend to break down often. However, if your crate is stationary or will be moved from room to room infrequently, your options will broaden.
