Making Your Dog's Crate Feel Like Home

A dog crate should be a safe, comfy place for your canine companion to relax. Outfitting it with the right accessories can turn it into the ultimate doggy den.


Make the crate a pleasant experience from day one. Toss treats into the back and let your pet discover them at their own pace.


For house-trained dogs, the crate should be large enough for them to comfortably sleep and move around.

Right Crate

If your dog likes to shred plush toys or is an avid chewer, choose a simple crate mat instead of a plush one.


Provide your dog with some crate-appropriate toys to keep them preoccupied.

Crate-Appropriate Toys

Keep your dog comfortable inside the crate. Avoid common hazards like placing the crate in direct sunlight or too close to a heat source.

Feel Safe
