Whether your dog is going on a long journey or just a short trip to the vet, it is essential to have the right equipment, so safety is top-notch, and the trip is comfortable for the dog and owner. Here are a few tips for finding the right hundebur for your dog:
Purpose: First of all, you should be clear about the purpose for which the hundebur is to be used: Should it be a dog cage for the car, a transport box for the flight, a dog cage for exhibition or maybe a carrying case for shorter trips, etc.
Dog cages for the car: Dog cages for the vehicle must be relatively stable (secured against accidents) and should usually have a sloping front. A dog hundebur must also have wide ventilation grilles for good air circulation, a solid back wall, and a solid bottom. In addition, a firm grip and easy installation make a dog cage for the car complete.
Dog hundebur for airplanes: A dog cage for air travel must be stable and easy to carry. The closures need to be closed, and there should be plenty of storage space for food, snacks, and accessories.
Transport boxes in fabric Perfect for shorter trips. They can be used as a transport cage in the car and as a cosy place to sleep when you arrive. They are usually collapsible and take up very little space.
The hundebur are stable, durable, and robust. It is perfect to use as dog cages in the car or for exhibitions. They are easy to clean but somewhat heavier than transport boxes in fabric or plastic, which is why they are also well suited for standing in a fixed place such as in the car.
Plastic transport boxes Suitable for long trips and air transport. They are light and easy to wash but are generally not as durable as metal boxes and are often used for smaller dogs and other pets. They offer less air circulation in the summer but are suitable for dogs who do not like to travel and like to hide away when traveling.
The hundebur should be approx. 15 cm taller and longer than the dog, so it has enough space to move. If the dog box is for a puppy that is still growing, it may be a good idea to buy a few sizes larger and with a dividing wall, so you have the opportunity to divide the box so that it fits the puppy now and later.
The dog owners and those just planning to acquire a four-legged friend ask themselves: why do we need cages for dogs; is it possible to do without it if there is a plastic carrier; what are the advantages of portable hundebur.
What is a cage for?
A home cage is a large metal structure that serves as a kind of “personal room” for the dog. This is a place where a four-legged friend will feel protected, will be able to rest, sleep, and retire. Staying in it should not be a punishment, but the dog must understand that the owner can demand that he be in the cage for a specific time.
A hundebur for a dog’s apartment may be needed during repairs, cleaning, the arrival of guests with small children, or in other situations when the pet may be stressed, injured, or inconvenient for the owners and guests. The pet should feel comfortable all the time being in the “house.” To do this, put a mattress, rags, and a hygienic diaper on the bottom to make the dog more fun – to give him a favorite toy or a treat.
For puppies, crate training should be an indispensable element of upbringing, the same as eating in a particular place, putting on a collar and leash, washing paws after a walk. One of the ways of training is to take off the collar or harness before entering it. This gives the pet a feeling of freedom.
The dog cage should be located in a convenient place that suits the pet and suits its temperament. It is better for dogs that love solitude to put it in a tiny room or a secluded corner. For sociable pets, it is better to put a “house” not far from the place where you and your loved ones spend more time.
At the same time, the cage should not be in a draft so that the pet does not catch a cold, but it should not be placed in a stuffy, unventilated corner either. Fresh air is essential for dogs but critical for breeds such as the French bulldog and Pug.
