    a den of my own

    Which is right for my dog?

    Kennels are a great tool to help train your pet, travel safely by car or by air and offer your pet a place of their own in your home. However, to enjoy these benefits it is essential that you choose the proper kennel!

    It is important to note that a kennel should not to be used as a form of punishment or as a long-term pet sitter. If your pet has never been kept in a kennel, specific training is necessary for your pet’s safety.

    When choosing the proper kennel for your pet here are some of the questions you should ask:

    24-inch high plastic dog kennel with a wire doorWhat will the kennel be used for?

    • Plastic kennels — Ideal for travel by car or by air. Also good for in-house kennel training and giving your pet a "den" of their very own.
    • Wire Crates — Best for in-house kennel training.

    What size should I buy?

    • Measure your dog from the top of his head to the floor and from the tip of his nose to the base of his tail.
    • The height of the kennel should be 1-2 inches taller than your pet when standing and there should only be enough room for your pet to stand up, turn around and lie down.


    • If the kennel is too small your pet will not be comfortable.
    • If the kennel is too large training may not be as effective; your pet may go to the bathroom on one side and sleep on the other.
    • 40-inch high plastic dog kennel with a wire doorIf used for air travel, airline regulations apply to the size of kennel for your dog. Talk with the airlines before purchasing a kennel.
