Large Dog Crates
If your furry friend is a larger breed, then a large dog crate would probably be the most suitable option. Providing you have enough space in your car boot, these crates will ensure that your dog can’t move around in the car and distract the driver or cause a danger to themselves. All of our large dog crates have locks that are straightforward for you to unlock, but are secure enough to keep your dog contained. You can rest assured that your dog will be safe in the car or tucked up securely at night. The Savic Mobile Residence large dog crate is ideal for travelling and has been designed to fit seamlessly into a car with a sloped front to avoid being hit by the boot door. Another alternative is to use a Dog Guard, which will allow your dog to move about in the boot, but block them from jumping into the main car area.
If you are looking for the ideal crate for the home, you can try the original Savic Residence, which has size options up to ‘giant’ for particularly large breeds. This is a super durable model with two secure doors and can be used in conjunction with Savic Crate Dividers for puppies that need to grow into their crates. For extra comfort, simply pair up the crate with a dog bed and make the space feel a little more homey for your canine companion.
Small Dog Crates
We have an array of small dog crates that would be ideal for puppies and little dog breeds. From the Indigo Igloo Dog Kennel that can be moved around and is fully insulated for a comfortable night’s sleep, to the Trixie Biker Box, we have a range of affordable small dog crates that will meet every requirement. Whether you need something for in the car or in the home, we have got you covered.
If you want to avoid using a crate for safe travelling, we also have the Trixie Car Booster Seat as an option. This seat keeps your small dog protected with a seat belt, but it also doubles up as a bed too. This multi-purpose booster is perfect for both comfort and safety, as well as raising your dog to give them a glimpse out of the window.
Are Crates Good For Dogs?
Although many people may feel guilty for crate training or using a crate in their car, enclosed spaces actually create a shelter for your dog to rest and relax. Dogs instinctively search for small spaces to create protective shelter for themselves, so training your pooch with our dog crates in the UK can actually be beneficial for them. They can learn to self soothe, manage any anxieties, and provide them a space to call their own where they take a break from any stressful situations, such as a busy household.
Not only is a crate a safe space for a dog, but it can also be the difference between safety and uncertainty. If you have an unexpected emergency, having the ability to quickly evacuate your dog is crucial, so it can be extremely beneficial if they are cooperative and know to enter their crate. Plus, they also make travelling a lot easier, especially in cars and planes.
Overall, dog crates in the UK are widely recommended by vets, especially during the puppy stages. By training them to be comfortable in their crate and seeing it as a safe space, you can boost your dog’s wellbeing and offer them a cosy spot of their own. Of course, never leave your dog in their crate all day, and limit crate time based on how long they spend inside daily, their age, and level of house training.
