The use of dog cages indoors is often the subject of heated debate among dog owners and professionals in the sector. So is it a good idea or a bad idea?

A crate can help protect your dog from potential dangers in the home, such as electrical wires or breakable objects. In addition, if your dog is used to a crate at home, he will probably be more comfortable when he has to be carried in the car or stay in a new environment.

If the crate is used as punishment or if your dog is locked in it for extended periods of time, this can lead to stress and anxiety for the animal.
Dogs are social animals and need to interact with their families. Leaving them in a cage for too long can be detrimental to their emotional well-being.
Dogs that are locked in cages for long periods of time don't have the opportunity to stretch their paws and exercise, which can lead to health and behavioral problems.

If you have to use the crate, it is important to create a comfortable environment, blankets, toys, treats... so that your dog associates it with a pleasant place. The crate should be seen as a safe and positive place for your dog. Never use it as a punishment or to express your discontent.

Introduce the crate slowly and gradually, encouraging your dog to explore and enter the crate voluntarily. Use positive reinforcements, like treats and praise, to reward appropriate behaviors.

Dogs should not be kept in a crate for extended periods of time. Make sure your dog has plenty of free time to interact with you, exercise, and explore the environment.

Watch your dog carefully for any signs of stress or anxiety while in the crate. If your dog shows signs of distress, it is imperative to remove the crate and turn to a canine trainer to find an alternative solution such as indoor enclosures, dog gates or the use of a dedicated room.

Your dog does not have to eat after you!

The alpha male theory is a widely held belief that suggests that a dominant hierarchy must be established between owner and dog, and that the owner must eat before his dog to assert his leadership position. However, recent research has questioned this theory and has shown that establishing a relationship based on trust and cooperation is more beneficial for dogs and their owners. It is therefore no longer appropriate to have your dog eat after yourself. We explain to you why!
