Dog crate covers are a great addition to any dog crate for the added security, warmth and weather protection. Dog crate covers work well both indoors and outdoors. They are a popular way to cover up the typical metal wire that most crates are made with.
Keeping your dog comfortable
Dogs evolved as den animals, and dog crate covers help create the atmosphere they instinctively crave. Even dogs want their privacy at times, and a cover reduces unwanted light and noise. There are also the direct environmental benefits with covers keeping in warmth on cold days and providing protection from the sun when it is hot.
Keeping a home clean
Dog crate covers also work great to stop dog hair and dog danger from spreading through your house. Since dogs will spend a decent portion of their lives in their crates, you can actually drastically reduce the amount of hair and dander that you have floating around your home by buying a dog crate cover.
It is hard to find a dog crate that really goes with any indoor décor. However, locating a crate cover that will go with any room is far easier. With most covers very reasonably priced, this is an inexpensive way to make your home look better.
Most dog crate covers are made from some type of fabric, which means they are machine washable and dry-able. This is a great feature that allows you to get all of that extra hair and dander out of your house. Simply remove the cover from the dog crate, take it to your washing machine, clean it, dry it and replace it. This can be done during the day when your dog is more active and less likely to go to their crate.
A lot of covers for dog crates have roll up panels on the sides and heavy-duty zippers on the corners. This allows for a variety of designs of dog crates like 1, 2 and 3 door dog crates to work with the same cover. Installing and removing the covers is also usually quite simple. Most models use a hook and loop strap system to attach the cover to the dog crate so it doesn’t slide or fall off.
When you are looking to buy a dog crate cover, be sure to look for the proper cover that is made for your specific dog crate brand, model and size. Since most crates vary somewhat in their design, the covers for the crates are usually designed different to be a snug fit for the crate.
