Welcome and thank you for visiting Doggocrate.com. Doggocrate is an ultimate dog crate resource, packed full of useful information, tips, advice, and reviews on dog crates. Fundamentally, I want dog owners to have the best dog crate experience and that starts with getting the right advice & information. Information that has been thoroughly researched so that you can make an informed decision on which dog crate best suits yours and you doggo’s needs.
Let me introduce myself, my name is James and I am a passionate dog owner. Dogs have always been a part of my life. Throughout my childhood, my parents always had dogs including a couple of Yorkshire Terriers, a Fox Terrier, a Whippet cross, a Golden Retriever, and a few Rottweiler’s. Now that I am on my own, I currently I have a Rottweiler & a Japanese Spitz. It’s an interesting combination but I love them both.
Living with these various adorable family members over the years I have seen firsthand the destruction that they can create when left alone. There have been numerous furniture casualties, including chewed on wooden legs of furniture, parts of leather lounges eaten, doors and timber framework gnawed on, bits of carpet pulled out of the pile, shoes destroyed, and of course the odd pee and poop in the house as they learn potty training and house rules. But I still love them.
For years I had put my dogs in the laundry or garage at night with some bedding for their comfort. Then about 5yrs ago, a new family friend who is a professional dog training expert, introduced me to the concept of “crating” a dog. After a few weeks of getting my doggo’s use to their crate, I was impressed with the benefits that I saw in “crating” a dog. They now have their own space within the home, a space that they could feel safe. I can lock them in their crate to prevent them from getting up to any mischief when I was out. They now sleep in their crate in the house where they feel more connected to me, in essence, they now have a home within a home and that works well for me and for them.
I developed this website because I wanted to provide an ultimate dog crate resource for other dog owners and share as much knowledge as possible, fundamentally to help dog owners have the best dog crate experience. My team of researchers and I have talked with professional dog training experts, read hundreds of dog crate reports/reviews/complaints, visited several pet communities and blogs, researched, and analyzed many dog crates for their durability and safety, and have formulated the content that is available on this site. Key subjects include:
- dog crate size guide by breed. A
- Benefits of dog crating.
- Things to consider when buying a dog crate.
- Numerous in-depth dog crate reviews.
- A dog crate training guide.
- Our top list of dog crates and their ratings
- And information on how to measure and pick the right size cage for your dog.
It is difficult to choose from the wide variety of dog crates available in the market. It can seem a little dauting and confusing, and there are so many options and brands to choose from. How do you know which one is right for your dog? Fortunately, my team of researchers and I have written in-depth reviews and articles covering the best features, pros & cons that each dog crate has to offer, so that you can make that all important informed decision based on thorough research on which dog crate is best for your needs and your dog. We will continue to research, analyze and test more cages to make our reviews list more comprehensive and updated.
Wishing you and your doggo the happiest of futures. Remember, life is too short to live without a dog by your side.
