Those of us with bigger dogs know the struggle of trying to find best extra large dog crates that won’t be too small and constricting on our beloved pets. There's hardly anything pleasurable about seeing a dog squished uncomfortably into a tiny dog crate. My Australian Shepherd, Walter, is a very… enthusiastic dog. Walter, God love him, is wild. He wants to be a part of everything, even things that shouldn’t include him at all, such as taking a shower, baking, and sleeping.
There are three most common materials used – steel, aluminum, and wood. The steel ones are the most durable and an excellent option for the aggressive dogs. The aluminum kennels are a bit lighter but equally as durable, while the wooden ones look the best but aren’t as safe as the two previous versions. For smaller and not aggressive dogs check top soft-sided crates.

Place the crate somewhere ‘scenic’ & interesting. It may be beneficial and relaxing for your dog to have something interesting to look at while in the kennel. You could experiment by placing the enclosure near a window so your pet can watch the world pass. The opposite may be beneficial and distractions such as cats and people walking by may get him overly excited and needing to escape.


Helping Rescue Dogs Get Adjusted To Crates Rescuing a dog is a gracious act. It's sometimes tough to take home a dog without knowing what the pup's life was like before he or she ended up where you found them. Because of this, taking a dog home and training it to use a crate is a tough task, as many aren't too excited about being in a cage again. However, with the right kind of crate, your new dog can feel comfortable and right at home with its new family. CLICK HERE to see how rescue dogs can be trained to use Dog Crates

After having this crate for two months I've come to the conclusion that this is AWESOME. I am buying two more... one for each dog. It is easy to store (folds flat), transport (MUCH easier to set up in a SUV or car than one of those metal crates), carry (the handle is nice), and clean (take off the cover; wash, dry, put back on easily and there are no issues with wear and tear from the W/D as of yet).
