Dog crate and kennel

Sometimes there is confusion in the minds of new dog owners over the two different types of dog containment devices: dog crates and kennels. A dog crate and kennel are two very different things. A dog kennel is a fenced containment area that is normally set up in the yard and is used primarily as a house and home for your pet. Some people place a doghouse inside of the kennel but this isn't always necessary.

ent device it is used primarily indoors and while it could also be considered a dog house of sorts, the dog generally considers the whole its owner's house its home.

A crate is often used in house training dogs as they will not soil the area in which they sleep but this is not always possible with kennels as they are usually large enough that the dog feels comfortable using one end as its bathroom while using the other end as it sleeping area.
It is possible to place a dog crate inside of a dog kennel but normally dog owners opt to put an actual dog house inside the kennel if they are going to put anything other than just a cover over the top of it.
Whether you are planning to purchase a dog crate or kennel for indoors or outdoors it is important to do some research into the kind, size or material that is best for your particular breed of dog because if you get the wrong thing your dog will not benefit as much as it could. Care should also be taken because the wrong item could put your dog at risk.
