There are many different types of dog kennels available to meet the varying needs of pet owners. New dog owners should to do their research and weigh the options in order to make the right selection for their pet. One key point to consider is the type of material used to make the dog kennel. The most common options include wood, metal, and plastic.
Here are some things to keep in mind when buying a kennel:
Wood: Many people favor wooden kennels because it is a good insulator, keeping your pet warm inside when it is cold outside. A wood shelter is an economical way to keep the heat inside when your pet is in a cold climate. Additionally, wooden kennels are aesthetically pleasing and simply look nice. However, there is one major disadvantage to wooden kennels. If not properly treated and maintained, they can easily rot.
Metal: Metal kennels are another popular choice for pet shelters. Metal is durable and lasts especially long if it is galvanized or treated to prevent rusting. An advantage of metal over wood is that they are often cheaper and more lightweight, making them easier to move from one place to another. On the other hand, metal kennels do not provide the same insulation that a wooden kennel can provide. Because heat easily and quickly escapes metal kennels, they often need to be covered in an additional later, like canvas or a heavy blanket, to keep pets warm inside.
Plastic: Plastic kennels are usually the cheapest. Other benefits of plastic kennels are that they are waterproof and can last for a long time, if properly maintained. As for insulation, plastic kennels contain heat better than metal kennels but not as good as wooden kennels. One shortcoming of plastic kennels is that they are limited in design and less attractive.
Keep in mind these material options when shopping for the right kennel for your pet. There are advantages and disadvantages to each. Never overlook the climate where you live, the breed and size of your pet, and the importance of a proper shelter. Be an informed shopper and make the right investment for your needs.
