Cheap dog crates can do more than save you money - they may actually kill or injure your dog. Poorly constructed metal and plastic crates cause over 100 dog deaths every year due to cuts, infections and even strangulation. Before you waste your money and possibly your dog's life on a cheap crate, keep reading.

Not Air Certified

There's a reason most cheap dog crates aren't cleared for air travel - they're unsafe and not suited for air travel conditions. Typically, most air crates need to be easily opened and closed from the outside and provide the animal with enough ventilation and protection.

More important, a good carrier needs to be made from heavy-duty plastic. Last year, over 5 dogs were hurt after cheap plastic dog crates cracked because of pressure changes. The cracked and chipped plastic either cut or hit the animals. Obviously, their injuries were not noticed or treated until well after the plane landed.

Too Collapsible

Stay away from low-quality, wire crates that are collapsible. Numerous consumers have complained these crates do not hold up and can simply collapse on the animal without warning - a scenario that can be deadly for small puppies. While adult dogs typically won't be severely injured by a collapsed crate, being trapped for possibly hours is stressful and causes anxiety.

Not Enough Ventilation

Cheap dog crates that are made from plastic or fabric tend to not offer enough ventilation for your animal, making them feel trapped and as though they're not getting enough air. Several years ago, dogs in a California kennel were found dead after being kept in cheap, plastic kennels that were too small. The dogs suffocated.

Aside from asphyxiation, the other danger connected to poor ventilation in fabric or plastic dog cases is over-heating. A dog trapped inside a cheap crate for hours on a hot summer day can become dangerously dehydrated.

Buying a Good Crate

When buying a crate, look for one that's made from good materials, is big enough for your dog, has enough ventilation and is easily opened from the outside. If you purchase a wire crate, be sure to buy a crate mate to fit on the bottom.

Other Safety Considerations

Regardless of whether you're buying top-of-the-line or cheap dog crates, there are other safety factors to consider. For example, never put your dog in a crate while it's wearing a collar, as the collar can easily become caught on the wire. Also, always leave water and toys inside the crate and never, ever leave a dog alone or crated for more than 5 consecutive hours.

Rover Company manufactures the finest Plastic Whelping Boxes for Puppies on the market today in the USA. There are a number of different whelping boxes available on the market. These are manufactured in a wide range of different shapes and sizes. Whelping boxes are essential to provide the best conditions for your dog to give birth and raise small puppies. It is very important to supervise the birthing process. Although dogs make very nurturing mothers they can accidentally crush or squash puppies if they do not have the right PVC puppy rails pig rails. A cardboard box or wooden crate is just not good enough for the birthing process and laundry baskets with their patterned lattice work designs are even worse. Puppies can get caught up and injured by these lattice patterns which can often have sharp edges on the cut away areas. Plastic Whelping Boxes are specifically designed to provide safe, nurturing environments for small puppies and their mothers. They are essential for multiple litter breeds and can be reused. One way in which Plastic Whelping Boxes can help prevent puppies from getting injured is by using PVC pig rails. These help to ensure that the mother does not accidentally crush or squash the puppies against the box wall during birth and when they are still very small. Plastic Whelping Boxes make it much easier to keep puppies contained while still allowing the mom to come and go freely thru the door of the Dog Enclosure. A sheepskin furry pad makes the ideal lining for the Plastic Whelping Boxes. It is warm and can be easily washed and replaced every day. The whelping pad by Rover Company provides additional warmth and this will also give the puppies some traction as they start to learn to move around. Make sure you wash the whelping pads on a high temperature to eradicate any bacteria. Puppies are very vulnerable to certain harmful bacteria when they are young so you do need to make sure you clean and disinfect the Plastic Whelping Box thoroughly. Although puppies do not leave the Plastic Whelping Box at first the mother will come and go and could bring the bacteria in with her. Spray on the bleach solution and leave for at least ten minutes to allow it to destroy any bacteria present. Make sure you thoroughly rinse away the bleach solution and then dry before putting in new clean whelping pad lining. It is also a good idea to bleach the floor around the PVC Whelping Box at the same time (you should have the box on an easy to clean hard surface). Now you can put the puppies back into the PVC Whelping Pen.
