17 Apr To Crate or Not To Crate
Is crating Fido when I’m home acceptable?
Confine your dog to a crate or a kennel when you
can’t supervise him. Dogs are “den animals.” They derive a
sense of security and well being when they’re confined to a
small, enclosed area. Think of a kennel in the same way you’d
think of a baby’s play pen or crib: If your dog isn’t old
enough (or responsible enough) to be left unsupervised– then
put him in the crate. Include your dog in family holiday activities,
when supervision is possible, and your beloved pet will be a cherished
part of your family.
