[New Product] Gen7Pets Portable Petyard

Gen7Pets Portable Petyard

Playpens for babies have been around for decades and have become more of a necessity than a luxury for new parents. They are irreplaceable as a means of keeping a young one safe while allowing plenty of room to play with a few favorite toys. Wouldn’t it be great to have the same option for pets? The Gen7Pets Portable Petyard creates a comfortable play space for your pet that is water-resistant, weather-resistant and can be used indoors or outdoors. It’s a perfect solution when you need to keep your pet comfortably confined without resorting to a pet crate.

Is confining your dog in a crate a solution for anxiety?

The question of whether or not to use a dog crate to aid in house training and behavior modification has been hotly debated. The truth is that dogs are “den animals”, meaning by nature they prefer their own cave-like space to sleep in and raise their young. In the den, they feel warm, safe, and protected from any threats they might encounter in the wild. Using a dog crate may even help ease anxiety. That’s why some dogs easily accept a dog crate and actually prefer to stay in one at times. Other dogs may require some coaxing to embrace the crate, while still others will never take a liking to it. This is when pet parents usually turn to pet gates or pens.

How to use a dog crate

The benefits of training your dog to cooperate with being sequestered are long-lasting and well worth the effort. From dog boarding to dealing with separation anxiety, a dog who is comfortable with personal space and alone time is a happier dog overall.

Keeping your pet in a dog crate is not always an option and must be done with caution. The number of hours your dog is in the crate, as well as the circumstances for which it is used, are the keys to successful dog crate training. Although some people think only of using a crate as a tool for house training, there is also initial training necessary to teach your dog to use a crate successfully.

Get your dog used to going into the crate gradually using the following steps:

  • Make sure the crate is large enough for your pet to stand up and turn around in with ease.
  • Place the new crate near the sofa or anywhere you usually relax and spend your leisure time.
  • Leave the door open or remove it.
  • Put a cozy blanket on the floor to make the crate more inviting.
  • Bring your dog’s attention to the crate with positive reinforcement; a happy tone of voice, encouraging him or her to explore it.
  • Place a little of your dog’s favorite food or an irresistible treat just inside the door. Do this daily, each time putting the food or treat further back into the crate.
  • Keep your dog’s favorite pet toy in the dog crate, towards the back.
  • Begin feeding your dog in the crate. While your dog is eating, close the door but open it as soon as the meal is finished.
  • Gradually start leaving the door closed a little longer after each meal. Spend a few minutes sitting near the create, then leave the room for a few minutes, again staying away for longer periods of time gradually. Soon, you and your pet will feel comfortable using the crate while you leave the home for up to several hours at a time.
  • It is VERY IMPORTANT to take your dog for walks prior to crating sessions. Make sure he or she has had the opportunity to empty bladder and bowels before being confined for any length of time.
  • Soon, your dog will come to know that the crate is his or her special place.

The most important part of crate training is making sure your dog does not associate negativity with the crate. If you force your dog to use the crate or banish your pet to the crate for misbehaving, it’s no longer a special place but a punishment to be avoided. Never use the crate as a threat out of anger or annoyance, but more as a happy compromise.

But what about those times when you need to keep your pet contained but not confined? Now there’s a new solution that makes it easy to provide your pet with a safe, comfy play area that’s open enough to prevent that feeling of being on lockdown.

    This would be amazing to have. We kennel trained our dog after adopting him at six months old. He has bad anxiety having been abused prior to his adoption. We weren’t able to bring our kennel when we moved across the country, and need to get a new one, but just can’t afford it right now. Our dog would love to have his own special space again. It would help him a lot.
