Looking to buy Small Dog Crates?

Even the best behaved dog can get a little excited now and again. Whether it’s when they’re going to the vet for a check-up, or when unexpected visitors come calling, sometimes their rowdy behaviour means you can’t give them free reign. Of course, finding the right crate for your pet is entirely dependent on their breed. If you have a small dog than crates or pens built for larger animals will be too ungainly for you to use effectively. That’s where the small dog crates in OnBuy's UK range come in handy. They’re the right size for Jack Russell terriers, chihuahuas and other pint-sized pooches, as well as for puppies of larger breeds.

When would I need a dog crate?

You might be under the impression that putting your pet dog crates, small dog crates especially, is cruel and unfair. It’s a common misconception, but it’s just not true! In fact, both dog trainers and vets recommend you incorporate dog crates into your training. Rather than feeling restricted, your dog will feel safe in their crate, provided you get one the right size. This is because dogs naturally seek small places for their shelters. That way no predators can sneak up on them!

Small dog crates for cars are ideal for taking your four-legged friend to the vets or if you want to drive them to the woods or the beach for a special walkies trip. This is because it’s not safe for small dogs to slide around in the boot of your car. Many small dog cages have special anti-slip material at the bottom, which keeps the cage planted firmly on the ground. As any cages for dog cages for small dogs have handles they’re great for evacuating your dog in if there’s a household emergency like a flood or a fire.

Small dog crates are also handy for rescue dogs too, as it teaches them that they have their own special space that no other dog can enter. This can help reduce problem behaviour associated with rescue dogs such as barking or destructive acts. Whether you’re buying one of the small dog crates available at OnBuy or another size, it’s a good idea to get them used to it as soon as they become a member of your household. Try making your dog feel comfortable in the crate by feeding them treats and reassuring them. Avoid leaving your dog in the crate alone, or for more than three hours at a time.

What small dog crates can I buy?

These crates are made from thin pieces of metal, usually steel or aluminium, that are fitted tightly together so that your dog can’t chew them or escape. These crates allow a good deal of airflow, and your dog will always be able to hear and see you clearly. They’re lightweight, and often collapsible too, making them a great choice for taking your dog travelling in.

The other kind of small dog crates that are commonly found in this category are fabric pop up crates and pens. These fabric pens are effectively a small dog crate with a cover that can be erected quickly and are often a little larger and more homely than a metal crate. If you’re looking to reassure your dog, pick up one of these small dog crates.

Frequently asked questions about small dog crates

At what time should a puppy be put to bed?

Right from the outset, it's best to set a clear bedtime for your dog, as it'll make crate training so much easier for the both of you. The time doesn't matter too much, but you should make a routine out of it, and always help them settle in at night. 

Should my puppy sleep in complete darkness?

Numerous studies have shown that if your dog is exposed to light at night, it can block their melatonin production. Make sure you always turn the lights off in the room where your puppy is sleeping, and ensure that their crate is incredibly comfortable. 

When should I stop crate training my puppy?

If you have a training crate for you puppy, you should set a clear deadline (usually two months from the last potty inside). After this time of no accidents, you should stop crate training your companion.
