ALEKO Large Dog or Pet Pen 5 by 5 and 4 feet High

ALEKO Large Dog or Pet Pen 5 by 5 and 4-Feet High

A friend of ours has been struggling to find a suitable heavy duty Dog enclosure which would be sufficient to hold his Labrador pup while they were having some work done to their home.

They wanted one with a decent height to stop the bouncy Labrador pup from jumping over the sides and they wanted him to have room to move around. They also wanted to be able to increase the size of the pen if they needed to in the future and I just happened to come across the ideal one from ALEKO

You can see the same one here!

I found this for him and he was over the moon with it. This powder coated 1″ frame is four foot high and the sides are both five feet making a huge is five-foot square.
The kennel has eight steel mesh panels including a secure door in one of them. This door is really sturdy so there is no worry
about leaving the dog inside it if you are busy doing something else. One of the best things that he liked about the construction
of the kennel is that it was made up from strong galvanized steel that was then powder coated so no worrying about rust in the
future.

There’s even a two-year warranty included on this strong kennel, which is a major bonus – this product promises value for your money.

This dog kennel would be sufficiently roomy for medium to larger dogs, it’s a truly versatile kennel with just the right amount of
play space without looking cramped and it stands high enough at four feet that there is no escaping for your dog and no one can
reach over to steal your dog which can happen in some instances.
It can easily be customized and you can even add additional panels in order to increase its size, which makes it perfect for the larger breeds, or even housing multiple pets. With a flexible design like this, you will be able to adapt the dimensions in order to accommodate most pets. The only down side, in my opinion, is that there is no shade built into this design so my friend fabricated his own which works well enough.

Way More Than Your Average Pet Store

More Than Your Average Pet Store

Whatever your pet it is important to provide them with everything they need for hygiene and of course other essential supplies such as food, toys and everything in between.

Puppies, rabbits, kittens, parrots, rodents, lizards, fish, and other pets all have one thing in common: their humans love them. If you intend to home a new pet it is important that the are able to provide for it in every possible way. Some pets will last well over fifteen years  so it is important that you can meet its needs both financial and in commitment, some of them are going to require a lot of attention with training especially in the early part of its life. Some other pets simply require a stable environment and regular food and cleaning.

But take a dog as an example, he will require special attention right from the point of pick up, as soon as you collect him you are then responsible for his safety and well being. He will also need a crate big enough to house him now and considering his fully grown size. This will ensure his safety and keep him contained especially when he is going through initial toilet training. You also need a place that is comfortable and safe enough for him to call his bed and this will also keep him there while he is getting used to his new family, smells and surroundings. You should also keep him warm and comfortable by placing a blanket inside or even a proper bed.

There are many beds available online and it may not be clear which one you should go for initially so take your time and think carefully both your needs plus the dogs. Much will depend upon where he is going to be placed on a regular basis. It should be large enough to be comfortable and the location should be safe but not get in the way of your life. Time will tell you where this should be so give it a couple of weeks to make the final decision.

Toys will often help to amuse your dog or cat, they love to play with them and it helps to keep them amused especially if you’re not around all the time. House training a dog will take time and patience, you should also keep materials handy for those little accidents and you can surely expect to go though a few sets of bedding so make sure you have a couple of extra blankets etc. You should also keep some cleaning materials on hand too. Repetition is key in training your puppy to go outside or to let you know he is ready to go outside, you just need to read the signs so bear this in mind when you first get your puppy, so please remember this, it’s no point getting angry, he is a member of the family and as such he requires the love and support accordingly.

The method required for his training is by repetition, they don’t arrive with toilet training pr-profgrammed to go outside. So when he first awakes put him out until he has been, allow him time to do so, you could also try a lead but my experience would suggest he may find this a distraction. Avoid playing with the puppy until he has been otherwise he may forget and run back inside and promptly have an “accident” It may be frustrating for you but please don’t get angry or frustrated it will only make your puppy anxious and prolong the agony of trading. But once he has cracked it you should reward him so each time he gets it right reward him with a small soft treat and praise him. He will soon get the hang of it and within a few weeks there should be no more accidents. Most puppies should not leave their Mother until at least 8 weeks old so my assumption is of an 8 to 10 week old pup. Good Luck

Caring For Your Dog

If you are new to Dog ownership then you really need to quickly learn the basics of Caring For Your Dog, in fact you should have already got to this stage before even thinking of owning a dog and the responsibility that goes with it.

Many people have lived with pets their entire lives. If you are someone who now owns a dog or may be considering getting one, there are some things you should know. This article helps you to fine tune your skills as a dog owner.

So first of all lets consider your own health for a moment, current medical advise suggests that you should have a physical exam each year, so it follows that the same rule applies to your dog. You need to bear in mind that dogs don’t talk so you need to watch for signs of ill health, that goes without saying, it’s difficult to know if your dog is okay or not so unless you have noticed something wrong where you must immediately seek medical advice. But each year usually timed with getting your dog his regular shots he should also receive his regular check-ups from the Vet and this will help you to find these issues prior to them becoming a serious problem.

Note; I am going to use the words him/his as I discuss the dog but the same would apply if your dog is female (a bitch)

The rest of a dogs care is basic common sense and so much that applies to your dog would also to looking after a child, however I will still list a few of the basic rules in order to remind you to be prepared.

It may take you several months before you really get to know your new charge and how he may react to various outside noises and activities so meanwhile you must take extra care to prevent any possible event that could prove either harmful or dangerous to you, your dog or anyone else for that matter.

So always remember to take your dogs leash, even if he appears to be well-behaved. Almost anything including other animals or movement could startle him, causing him to run into dangerous territory, a road or even a busy area causing even more confusion or other unpleasant situation or worse. After all, you are responsible for your dog and you will be held accountable if your dog or anyone or thing else gets injured or damaged for your dog being off his leash.

Select the right food for your dog

If you need help with the type or amount of food you should be giving to your dog then discuss this with your vet or even your local pet store manager as they are often will acquainted with the subject. Although some dog owners are happy to stick to the recommended guidelines on the label of dog food, these guidelines can often be too much for your dog and can lead to obesity if left too long. Your vet can also recommend the best food for your type of breed because some breeds need certain foods if they are to remain in top condition.

If you intend to keep your dog outside for most of the time then build him a good sized kennel (house) ideally together with a fenced in run of his own or ensure that your garden fence is secure. I know this goes without saying but you must keep your dog safe and ensure that he cannot escape. You can buy a kennel or you can buy plans online if you are handy with building a kennel yourself. The main thing here is to provide a warm or cool and dry environment for your dog, if he constantly has wet feet he will suffer just as we can with wet feet which can crack (trench foot). Any extremes of temperature can be stressful for your dog and ultimately be bad for his health so he must be kept out of the worst of the weather just as we need.

Don’t accept any bad behavior from your dog, if you ignore it or treat it as funny you will eventually regret it if it develops into a serious behavioral problem with potential serious consequences. Again your dog is your responsibility and if he is not under control and injures someone then you will pay and you could even lose your dog and banned from ever owning a dog for the future.

If you intend to adopt a new dog from someone or a pet shop or maybe an animal shelter, you need to get a vets appointment booked as soon as possible. Even if the supplying location says that the dog has been checked you must still do this for your own peace of mind. Dogs could be sick or exposed to a variety of things including hard to spot viruses. The other option is to ensure that all the dogs papers are checked and do not accept a dog with no papers or history that you cannot check or confirm. Any new puppy must have a series of vaccinations to ensure his good health so without these you would be putting yourself, your dog and any other dogs into harms way.

Get your new pet a veterinary exam. Immediately after bringing home the new dog, schedule a checkup with your veterinarian. This allows the vet to look him over and schedule the necessary vaccines. You could also consider asking your vet about neutering your dog, sometimes it is advisable for a number of reasons including calming your dog. Shelters are filled with unwanted animals and not neutering your dog means you could be making this problem worse.

Some breeds of dogs are susceptible to possible health problems in later life than others, so it is important that you check all this out before deciding which particular breed to go for. Take the time to read up on your breed so that you don’t get any surprises down the road. You can also speak with a vet to see what can be done so that your pet will have a better chance at avoiding these health problems. It is possible to take out health insurance for your dog but the cost of these plans rises as they get older which means that the cost of this insurance could be too expensive in their later life so you cannot rely on this to cover any later health problems.
