Let’s see for a start. What is a cage for? During exhibitions, the dog cage will become a resting place from the ring. You can use it as a place to relax in your home. And in case of your absence, the cell will be just a valuable thing. Besides, the cage in the house will help the owner cope with sensitive moments during pet training for tidiness.
It will save you from the possible repair of your home as a result of the destructive behavior of your four-fourth pupil. Some dog breeds have a natural predisposition to pull into the mouth, chew, or chew everything. In this case, the cell will prevent all sorts of inedible things from entering the animal’s stomach. It is very convenient to transport a dog in a car, plane or train, just by putting it in a cage. So you protect both yourself and the dog.
Also, the interior of your car does not require cleaning. In airplanes, transportation of animals is permitted exclusively in cages. All stages of the flight often result in dogs in a stressful state. The cage can be a temporary home for a pet while traveling. There, the pet can comfortably relax and feel completely safe.
When hospitalized in a veterinary hospital, injuries or after cosmetic operations, the dog needs maximum rest. A cell in such cases can serve as a "hospital ward." The best option if the animal gets acquainted with the cage in advance. Otherwise, the stress of locking in the cell can delay recovery. Any animal is a vital personal space. A cage is a den or refuge for a dog. In it, your pet can take a break from the hustle and bustle, as well as hide from children if they start to bother.
If your dog is expecting offspring, the cage is all the more necessary as it will help keep all the puppies in one place. To teach a dog to the cage is quite simple if you follow the following rules. Turn the schooling into an exciting game. Throw an exciting toy, dog biscuit, or bone in the cage. Let the puppy on a team bring you the thing thrown there. It is essential to create positive emotions in the pet. Be sure to praise your pet. It is necessary to dedicate this game to two or three days, repeating the task 10-20 times daily.
When you let the dog out of the cage, as an encouragement, take it for a walk. You can conduct training to the cell in another way. Having closed the puppy in a cage, stay next to him, tell something, let him play with his fingers. Do not pay attention if the pet will whimper and whine. This exercise lasts 5-10 minutes. When the dog is easy to cope with this task, start to keep it in a cage at night. You may have to put a cage near the bed at first. Be prepared for the fact that at night, the puppy may want to empty the intestines and bladder. Take him to the designated place.
After two or three nights, your four-legged friend will get used to sleeping in a cage. After that, you can start leaving him there if you need to go somewhere else. Pre-walk your pet to fatigue so that he can more easily endure loneliness. The first times are absent for long. Gradually increase the time the animal is in the cage. There is a formula for calculating the time during which a puppy without a walk can sit in a cage. Here it is the age of the dog in months unit = number of hours.
An adult dog can also be taught to the cage. To do this, at the initial stage, the same methods are used for puppies. First, get the animal to enter the cage for a toy or bone safely. After two or three days, the dog should go there without motivation. After another couple of days, command her to lie down there and feed her right in the cage. These exercises are performed with the door open. Only about a week later close the door for a couple of minutes. At this stage, it is essential that the dog does not think that with the help of the barking can achieve the opening of the cage. Gradually increase the time the animal stays in the cage with the door closed.
When training a dog for a cage, make it clear that you love it when it is there. Avoid expressing your discontent. Be patient, because it takes 1-2 months on average to train a dog to the cage.
