After this wide range of dog beds, dens, carpets and cots for your dog, you now have all the tools at hand to choose which one is right for your four-legged friend.
All you have to do is evaluate the "dens", among those we have proposed and buy one, it will surely be a purchase that will bring wellbeing to your dog and consequently joy in the family.
Before making the purchase, of course, check the size of the kennel well, so that this corresponds to the size of your dog, to avoid unpleasant surprises on delivery, although you can still decide to change it by purchasing a different model.
Remember that the kennel for a dog has a fundamental function, it is in fact, as also described at the beginning, its den, its unique and exclusive place, where no one can bother him and where he will always find his peace and tranquility.
Now it is only up to you to choose the kennel that best suits your dog, the one that suits him, if your dog is small you can choose to buy a den for him that will be suitable for his size even when he is an adult, so that you won't have to buy another one after only a few months. In his kennel the dog must be able to lie down, he must be able to get up and move, therefore, he must have a comfortable space where he can take refuge. Unfortunately, if the kennel is too small, your dog will assume wrong positions and postures, with probable bad consequences for his back, for his joints and for his health. When evaluating the purchase of a kennel, considering the size of your dog, you will have to take into account the weight of your dog, because some kennels, as the beds could be, are not suitable in most cases for large dogs .
I still want to remind you of the fundamental importance of choosing where to place your dog's bed. Choosing the right position is indeed very important. It is mandatory to avoid passing places, such as corridors or door entry, because your dog must not be disturbed by continuous and sudden noises and movements while he is resting or sleeping. The best places to place the kennel are certainly the corners of a room, where the dog can sleep peacefully, without being constantly disturbed, it is also wrong to place the kennel on the armchairs or on the sofas.
What are the basic rules for the dog kennel?
You must never disturb the dog when it is in its kennel and you must absolutely not take or occupy its space, in fact, if you want to interact with it, you will simply have to call it or get it out of the kennel.
Another piece of advice I can give you is that when you have to clean and wash your dog, then do things to him that you certainly don't like, you don't have to do it when he's in the kennel. The kennel must be its exclusive den, it must not become the place to do things other than resting and sleeping. Same thing with regards to the games you play with your dog, never make them in his kennel, because, remember that the kennel is his, only his.
If you live in a family with other people and especially with children, also teach them these rules, these good habits and make sure they are respected and therefore, even children do not go to play with the dog in his kennel and go even to sleep with the dog in the kennel.
Every once in a while, your dog, for some reason that you don't know, may want to stay in his dog's bed alone, without wanting to go out and without interacting with you or the others in the house, in this case, you have to leave him alone, ignoring him. When he wants and when he is ready he will leave the kennel by his own will.
After all the information and advice I gave you, I believe it is time to choose the kennel for your dog, if it is not a problem for you, you can buy more than one kennel for your dog, in order to use in winter a very warm kennel and in summer a fresh or even cooler.
A dog without a kennel is like a homeless person, it can adapt to sleep in the car, or in other places, but its rest will never be good and healthy, therefore, I strongly advise you to give your companion a four-legged pet bed , which will be his house, his real corner of paradise, his exclusive environment for relaxing and sleeping.
Your dog will never ask you for anything, remember, on the contrary, he will appreciate whatever you give him or you will do for him, the kennel is certainly the best gift you can give him and he will be grateful to you forever, every day.
