Finding the best dog crate is a crucial decision for pet owners, regardless of whether you have a small, big, high-stress, or elderly dog. It’s an essential tool for their safety, comfort, and overall well-being. With the vast array of options available, the quest for the ideal dog crate can be overwhelming. Thankfully, we’re here to help you navigate this very important decision with various options of Omlet dog crates that are suitable for all pups in all situations. 

How to choose the best dog crate for your furry friend

Choosing the best dog crate for your beloved furry friend is like selecting the perfect home – it should be cozy, safe, and tailored to their unique personality. There are three main things to consider when choosing the perfect crate for dog:

  • Size
  • Storage
  • Movability

First, consider the size; your dog crate should be spacious enough for your dog to stand, turn around, and stretch comfortably, regardless of their size. And remember to also account for your dog’s growth if they’re still just a puppy – as your dog grows, so, too, should their crate.

Next, think about storage. Where are you going to put your dog’s crate? Will it stay in your bedroom? Or will it be front and center in your living room? Whether you’re using the dog crate just for training purposes, or for a safety spot for them to relax, you will need one that is strong and durable. If you plan on using it as a doggie den for your furry friend, you may want to consider a dog crate that is built more like furniture and can complement your decor.

Lastly, you need to think about how you are using the dog crate. For many pet owners, a dog crate is only used for safety reasons, i.e. traveling in the car to the vet or on vacation. In this case, a dog crate that is easy to collapse and fold is ideal and will make both you and your dog’s lives easier! In addition, an easy-to-transport dog crate also means no hassle, and you’ll be able to move it around your home should you decide to change its location.

Best dog crates for large dogs

Big dogs need big things. And that includes dog crates. So if your furry friend is large like a German shepherd, Labrador, or Bulldog, you’re going to need a dog crate that will fit their size and stature. Our top choice is the Omlet large dog crates as they are designed with larger breed dogs in mind, providing ample space for them to stretch out comfortably and move around in. Its double doors not only allow for easy access, but flexibility of placement as well. 

Best dog crates for small dogs

When it comes to small dog crates, Omlet has a range of design options engineered to cater to both the comfort of your smaller dog’s needs and the design of your home. The Fido Studio is a standout choice for petite breeds like the chihuahua, dachshund, or papillion as it offers a cozy den-like enclosure that also doubles as a piece of furniture. With its modern design, your pint-size pup will feel secure and safe in a comfortable spot that blends seamlessly into your home. Store your small dog’s favorite accessories in the optional wardrobe and create a room all their own.

Best dog crates for puppies

When it comes to puppies, dog crates are an essential part of parenting. Not only are dog crates crucial for their safety and puppy training, but for their comfort as well. The Omlet Fido Classic crate is an excellent choice for several reasons. Firstly, it provides a secure space where your puppy can’t get into mischief or danger. Which, in turn, also helps reduce the risk of destructive behavior!

Second, a dog crate for your puppy aids in-house training by leveraging a dog’s natural instinct to not use their sleeping area as a potty. Consider it a “bladder controller” that helps prevent indoor accidents.

To use a dog crate effectively for your puppy, ensure it’s appropriately sized, allowing them to move around in it freely and comfortably. Introduce positive associations, such as dog treats and dog toys, to make the crate a welcoming space. Then, gradually increase crate time so they become familiar with and used to using it as a spot for security. After a while, you can add a comfy puppy bed inside the crate to make this their designated spot.

Best dog crate for senior dogs

You may be asking, “why would my senior dog who has lived their whole life without a dog crate suddenly need one?” Great question – we’re glad you asked.
