Reasons to purchase a Vari-Kennel:
Housebreaking: It is a dog's natural inclination toward dens that makes kennels so useful to housetrain puppies. Since puppies will not normally soil an appropriately sized den, Vari-Kennels are extremely effective for helping puppies gain control over their bladders. They help reduce the number of accidents you will have to clean up, and cut in half the time it takes to teach puppies where they are supposed to relieve themselves. When it comes to housebreaking a new puppy, there is nothing that makes the training go faster or easier than a kennel. The right size kennel is one in which your pet can lie down, turn around, and have three to four inches of extra head space when sitting or standing. While the right-sized kennel may seem too confining or too small to you, it isn't for your dog. With the correct size kennel, housebreaking is often completed in 10 to 14 days.
Protecting the Puppy and Your House
Kennels are useful during the puppy period as a way to protect your home from the mad dashes that knock over the plants and furniture, chewing teeth, and generally uncontrollable behavior. Kennels can keep puppies from forming bad habits when they are not under a watchful eye. As an adult, the kennel will be just as useful. If puppies are introduced to a kennel correctly, they will not resent them and most will actually consider them their private hideaway spot. This quiet den-like refuge is good for high-activity households, particularly those with young children.
Traveling with pets, be they puppies or adults, is safer and easier when you use a kennel to control them. Kennels are a sensible choice if you plan on traveling with your pet by plane. Plastic crates are required by law. Some owners feel kennels provide a greater sense of security and privacy for their pets. Always check with your individual airline well in advance of your flight for their particular requirements for pets.
