Dog Crate and a Pad

1320212120 -plush-sleep-ezz-creamWhen I decided to turn my outdoor dog into an indoor dog, I really didn’t know what to expect.  One nice surprise is, he was house broke!  How did that happen?  I don’t know except that he only relieved himself inside his dog pen if he was left in for an extended time.

So, this was great!  The rest should be a piece of cake.

He found his sleeping spot – on a blanket under the bed.  Okay.  He likes a nice soft place to sleep that will also satisfy his den instincts.

I purchased a wicker dog crate (which I love in my home) and a plush Sleep Ezz crate pad.  Perfect!  However, sometimes he does pull the pad out of the crate and just lays on it on the floor.  Nothing wrong with that.  One of the great things about a crate pad is – it can be used anywhere!

He is doing GREAT indoors and he is such a joy.  Glad I brought him into my home!

Wooden Dog House With Slant Roof

premium plus dog houseHave you ever wondered why you might want a slanted roof on your dog’s house rather than a peaked roof? Dogs love to lay on top of their houses.

The shingled, slanted roof not only provides shade and keeps out rain, snow, etc., it also provides your dog with a place to lay out in the sun.  Have you seen pictures of Snoopy?  How can he sleep on that peaked roof?

This dog den with a slanted roof also has an off-set door.  This provides extra protection if a storm comes up.  Your dog can get out of the doorway to stay out of the rain and/or wind.

With a raised base and adjustable feet, this outdoor dog house will stay dry!

Indoor/Outdoor Dog Kennel

4 panel pet playpen94192-3 All dogs love the great outdoors and sometimes I like to leave my dog out just so he can play or soak up the sun.  But, I want him to stay at home and I don’t want to put him in any danger.

At other times I like to keep him indoors but contained so I can do house chores or have visitors without interference.

This dog kennel is just what I needed.  Outdoors it keeps my dog at home and safe from predators or other dogs and keeps him out of trouble.  It is easy enough to set up and take down and lightweight enough to move from indoors to outdoors and back in again.  Plus it is a great looking dog pen!

Another plus of this kennel is that it converts to a room divider with a gate, allowing you to let your pet be contained in a larger area.  Just set it up using as many of the panels as you need to close off the space you want to keep your dog in.  The gate will let you enter his area without having to move the whole divider.

Blow molded plastic makes this indoor/outdoor dog kennel easy to clean.

You can find this dog kennel/room divider in two sizes at DogHousesandPens.com.

Metal Dog Houses

img1140846075There are many styles and sizes of dog houses out there made of a variety of  materials – wood, plastic, metal.  Metal?

When I think of a metal dog house, I think HOT or COLD.  But, these ingenious dog houses have 1.25″ fully insulated walls, roof and floor between the metal exterior and the full lined wooden interior, keeping this dog house warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Our metal dog houses are welded, not bolted, and are powder coated for excellent protection.  The flat roof extends past the outer wall allowing rain and snow to run off, plus it allows your dog to lay on top of the house.  The floor is raised four inches off the ground for more insulation and to keep water from flowing into the dog house.

Great options are available for these insulated dog houses such as an electric heating pad and a plastic door to help keep out extreme weather conditions.

Available in Large or XXLarge, you can find these metal dog houses at DogHousesandPens.com.  Just click on the K9 Kennels banner.

Take Your Dog Along

dog-bag-pet-tent-lifestyleHave you noticed that more and more places are accommodating dogs in their businesses?  All the more reason to take your pet with you when you go.

Many restaurants are even allowing dogs to enter with their owners.  For a small fee, many motels will let you bring your dog into the room.

This is great!  However, you don’t want to have your dog running around like a toddler in the restaurant, or keeping you up at night in the motel.  And you certainly don’t want him barking at inappropriate times (when other people are eating or trying to sleep).

Bringing his home with you when you go will reduce the chance of annoying others.  He will feel right at home in his own dog tent that is simple to take along and allows him to see what is going on around him.  Be sure to throw in his favorite toy and/or blanket to help him feel not only at home but also secure in strange surroundings.

You can find dog bag tents and other travel friendly dog crates at DogHousesandPens.com.

Humane Remote Dog Training

ET-300TS Mini Educator Remote Dog TrainerDoes your dog have behavior issues – jumping on people, digging, getting into the trash or the neighbors yard, chasing cars or other dogs?  You may be able to control them if you have them on a leash, but what about when they’re loose?

Most dogs have to be taught that these behaviors are NOT acceptable.  The most effective and humane way to teach your dog proper behavior is with a remote dog training collar.  This way, he will learn to respond even while he’s not on a leash.

The stimulation this training collar gives can be set on a level from 1 to 60 to get your dog’s attention so he will respond to your voice command.  It will help you reinforce the behaviors that you want.

You can turn your smart dog into a perfectly behaved genius with some simple basic training.

This mini educator with a 1/2 mile range can be found at DogHousesandPens.com.

Keep Your Pet Safe and Secure

I needed an affordable dog kennel that was easy enough to set up that I could do it by myself yet durable enough to ensure that my dog was secure.

This steel wire dog kennel was just what I was looking for.  The eight consecutive panels simply unfold and can be configured to the shape you want.  It even comes with ground anchors to make sure it stays put.  The double latch door keeps my dog secure.

Are You Ready For Winter?

small a-frame wooden dog house Winter weather will be here before I know it.  I don’t know where the summer went!

Are you ready?  Does your pet have a nice warm, dry dog house?

When you leave for work in the morning, it’s a beautiful day so you leave your dog out in the yard.  By the time you get home the weather has changed to a raging blizzard.  Ever happen to you?  Where I live (and I’m sure it’s true everywhere) the weather can change in a heartbeat.

The best way to be sure your pet will be protected is a wooden dog house, preferably one that is off the ground.  If you can attach a dog house door flap to keep out the wind and snow, even better.  An insulation kit would also put your mind at ease, knowing your dog has a warm place to get in out of a storm.

Training Your Dog

ET-300TS Mini Educator Remote Dog TrainerDo you have trouble getting your dog to respond to commands if he isn’t nearby?

My Corgi responds well IF he is within shouting distance.  But, sometimes, he gets away while I’m in the house or working in the yard and not paying close attention to him.  That is when I need a training collar!  That is on my shopping list.

You can get dog educators with ranges from one half mile to one mile plus with various degrees of stimulation.  This way you can teach your dog to respond and remember what they have been taught.

These collars are the most humane way to train your dog.  You can set and lock the stimulation level you want so you won’t have to worry about over-stimulation.  These dog educators also feature a night tracking light so you can locate your dog in the dark.

I would love to have a camera strapped to my dog to see where he goes and how he gets there.  I know he travels via the irrigation ditch and I’m guessing he probably goes through tubes that go under the road.  I would need a really tough waterproof camera.

Maybe I don’t REALLY want to know.

You can get a humane yet effective dog training collar from DogHousesandPens.com.
