Example text

Definition of Excessive Home Dog Crating: Crating or caging a pet dog for a period of time that produces immediate or long-term physical pain, emotional distress or negative behavioral changes in the dog; and/or any negative consequences or risk of danger to the owners. Each situation is completely different depending upon the effect upon the individual dog and thus the definition of “excessive crating” must always be subjective. Some people consider any amount of caging a dog cruel, while others become disturbed when daily crating goes beyond a certain number of hours.

Some behaviorists point to displays of anxiety like this as proof that dogs love spending the majority of their time in these small cages while, in reality, excessive crate time and lack of healthy stimulation in formative early weeks can produce dogs that run back to their crates because they are afraid of the world. Today sales people aggressively attempt to sell crates to every puppy buyer. Meanwhile crating supporters often refer to crates as “beds” or “houses” rather than “cages”, so those unfamiliar with the items may not even know what they are referring to.

Clinical separation anxiety is a serious disorder in dogs, and crates tend to cause it, even though some “experts” have started telling people the opposite. If a dog screams or pants constantly when crated and never stops, or if you return home to find the crate and the dog slippery with drool and/or loose feces, or the dog injured and bleeding from throwing himself against the crate, these are signs that the crate confinement has caused a state of emotional and physical extremity AND THAT HE SHOULD NEVER BE CRATED AGAIN.
