When moving, it is important to choose the right pet crate for your dog or cat. Crates protect your pets from accidents and provide comfort during stressful situations. You need to take into consideration choosing the correct crate size and the crate design. Your pet should have enough space in the crate for him to stand up and turn around comfortably. Also, how you are traveling makes a difference in what type of crate to purchase. For instance, airlines have certain standards and restrictions on pet crates. It is important to acclimate your pet to the new crate that you choose so that when it comes to moving day, he is comfortable inside of it.
- Pet crates usually come in many different sizes and you can even have one custom built for your pet.
- The best way to figure out what crate size is right for your pet is to measure from the top of their head to the base of their tail.
- Crates can be made from many different materials including plastic, wire, wood and soft-sided materials.
