Purpose and Use of a Kennel
Dogs, like their wild cousins, wolves, are naturally den animals. If introduced correctly, kennels provide a sense of security - a refuge where your dog can go whenever he needs to get away from the high activity level of your home or just wants some peace and quiet.
Reasons to purchase a Pet Porter: 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, the Pet Porter is 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 mad dashes that knock over the plants and furniture, destructive chewing, and other uncontrollable behavior. Kennels help prevent 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: Traveling with pets is safer and easier when you use a kennel to contain 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.
