Wire crates, soft crates, plastic crates - even dog crates that look like furniture! With all these kinds of dog crates on the market, its important to know what type of crate is best for training your dog.
Whole Dog Journal has written a lot in the past about the usefulness of having a comfortable crate your dog calls home. Crates are a convenient way to keep your dog out of harm's way, out of your way, and away from guests when necessary. A crate is regarded as the safest way to transport dogs in the car, and if you ever fly with your dog, you're going to need a crate for that too.
