    Top Five of the Best Dog Kennels for Breeders

    Kennels are the best ways to keep your dog safe and away from your guests. A kennel is also considered as a method to transport dogs to and from the vet. If you ever fly with your dog, you will need a kennel for that as well. The best dog kennels for breeders depends on your dog and your lifestyle. Here are some of the top kennels for breeders that make house training easier.

    Portable Dog Kennels

    These portable dog kennels are typically made from plastic. They generally carry small to medium-sized dogs. They are made from a durable plastic that never collapses. These dog kennels feature a swinging door and a handle on top. These types of kennels are ideal for dogs who are always traveling with their owners. These crates are ideal for car and plane travel. If you are flying with your dog, then you know he will need something durable. This type of kennel will provide him with the most protection.

    Folding Wire Dog Kennels 

    The wire dog kennel is the most common kind. Most of these are folded down, which allow for use inside the house or the car. The benefits to these kennels are that they are easy to clean, and they fit a wide variety of breeds. Your furry friend will have an unlimited view of the house from inside. Placing a thick mat or blanket on the bottom of the kennel will make it more comfortable for your dog. A disadvantage with these kennels is that they are often too big for most dogs that use them. However, a wire kennel may be roomy enough for your dog to do his business on one end and to sleep in his bed on the other end. 

    Soft Dog Kennels 

    These soft dog kennels are made out of canvas and nylon and are more collapsible than plastic or wire kennels. Keep in mind that these kennels are not for every dog. Dogs that love to chew, scratch, or jump around will not be ideal candidates for these soft crates. Dogs that are well-trained and well-behaved will have no problem with these kennels. They are light and portable enough for travel. This makes them a lightweight option for dogs of all sizes. 

    Heavy-Duty Dog Kennels 

    There is not always a need for a heavy-duty dog kennel. This type of dog kennel is generally marketed towards large dogs who tend to destroy or escape from their crates. A heavy-duty dog kennel is also an ideal option for dogs that fear most kennels. These are the types of dogs that chew on the crate and try to escape. This type of kennel is not meant to be used as a prison. If you need the right amount of security to keep your dog inside, then this will provide them the security that he needs. 

    Furniture Grade Dog Kennels 

    These types of kennels are commonly referred to as fashion kennels. It is exactly what you think it is: a kennel …

    The Stamina and Success Of Dog Training

    There is one thing for certain in this world: people love their dogs. Dogs have a special place in our hearts and our homes. They can be a companion for someone who is lonely or a playmate to a busy family with children. They are loyal and true; a friend when you need a friend. However, sometimes their bad habits get in the way of us seeing their cute personalities. This is when some training might come in handy to help them.

    Potty Training

    One of the most common concerns about training your dog always seems to revolve around “potty training”. Learning a schedule and sticking with it is one the most effective key components when training your dog to use the potty outside a bit quicker. The consistency encourages muscle memory which is something very similar to how children learn to use the potty.

    Your positive energy plays a huge role. Like most people, it’s annoying or frustrating cleaning one mess after the other, so the more positive energy you project the better results you should get. No different from a child, frequent potty usage will be on an all-time high in the beginning. This is why the important field of energy needs to be established when associating the outdoors with potty usage.

    We joyfully praise our children for perfect potty usage, but even if there are quite a few unfortunate or unexpected messes, we never change our energy to a negative feel. This might discourage your child from using potty alone or communicating to you they need to make a trip to the potty. Surprisingly some of the same rules apply to your new, cute, and adorable puppy.

    Obedience Lessons

    Can you recall every lesson learned from each teacher you have endured through high school or college? If you said no, me either. There’s always that one teacher or professor that intrigued your sensibilities towards learning. The same perspective of jogging your memory can apply to most growing puppies. It’s usually better to designate one teacher for your puppy’s learning skills. Inadequate training from other family members can offset everything you are trying to teach your pup.

    One of the hardest situations to implement adequate training behaviors from the entire family arises during dinner time. Everybody always seems to fall for that cute innocent whimper for scrapes off your plate. This very moment is the best time to stand firm on habitats your training your pup to avoid. This will help establish that begging doesn’t get him or her anywhere.

    Paying close attention to body language can be the icebreaker in most pet owner relationships. All pet personalities aren’t the same. I remember growing up when my sister and I had two different pet dogs of our own. A Pitbull Terrier named “Grits”, and a German Shepherd named “Rocky.” The difference in personality was immediately noticeable. Rocky’s attitude seemed to be more family oriented and loving. He enjoyed playing with all the family members but remained very protective …
