Pooch Crates and Kennels
Pooch Crates and Kennels provide a fast way to house-train your dogs. See, dogs have basic instincts too, just like humans. Their basic instincts tell them to seek a shelter where they'll feel safe and secure.
They'll seek this shelter, even in a house. If you don't provide them this shelter, they will create it themselves. So it is a good idea for you to provide this shelter, home, bedroom or personal space for your pooch.
By doing so, you will also be taking advantage of your pooch's other basic instinct of keeping his home clean, again just like humans.

For puppies, these pooch crates and kennels are a great tool. If placed in a crate, they will try to hold it until you take them out for a walk.
Please not that young puppies will need to go more frequently, about every 2 to 4 hours.
Do not leave them in the crate for longer periods than that!
As they grow older, you can leave them in the crate for longer periods of time.
Dog Crates are also referred to as dog kennels or cages. They come in various sizes and materials. The most common type is the wire mesh crate which is perfect for home use. If you plan on traveling with your pooch, then you might consider a collapsible or foldable crate.
If your pooch is a growing puppy, then choose a crate with divider panels so that the crate can "grow" with your puppy. If you have 2 dogs, then you might consider the side-by-side crates, which were designed to fit side by side in the cargo area of an SUV or van.
Please not that the crate must be large enough for your pooch to stand up, turn around and lie down comfortably.
