can Make dog enclosure the hands not only, but also it is necessary. It is not always convenient if the animal of large breed freely runs across the territory of the site. To put it on a leash – too not an exit. Especially as chain keeping of a dog leads to aggression development. And the animal who is broken from a leash can snatch not only on the stranger, but also on the owner. Therefore if the owner of the house decided to hold a dog, then to provide her worthy existence is its direct duty.
Types and location of open-air cages
Both stationary capital constructions, and temporary folding are applied to captive keeping of an animal. The last are generally used at dachas where accommodation seasonal. With the onset of cold weather such construction understands, disinfected and cleans up on storage. Capital constructions are applied in country houses and are a part of a complex of buildings and constructions of a household. Dimensions of the open-air cage depend not only on breed of a dog, but also on the sizes of the site and house.
they Settle down in such place that the dog looked through all territory from a gate to an entrance to the house . It is undesirable to equip the open-air cage near the fence which is going outside: people and cars will irritate an animal and to cause unjustified aggression. Have construction, as a rule, under a tree on the eminence of a relief of the site, far from cesspools and compost heaps and also sheds which held pets and a bird. Foreign, especially pungent smells irritate snuff receptors of a dog and can lead to deterioration in sense of smell. It first of all belongs to the maintenance of hunting dogs.
For production of vitamin C the dog needs the sun. However continuous stay on it negatively affects an animal organism, especially during the summer period. There is enough if the open-air cage is lit with direct sunshine in morning or evening. Such period has to be about 3 hours a day.
Structure of the open-air cage
Drafts therefore open-air cage walls, except front, become continuous are very harmful to a dog. Floors are usually made of concrete or asphalt. Asphalt, of course, is more preferable as it warmer also does not contain a lot of dampness. A part of a floor in a far corner is left without covering. In this place there will be a dog toilet. These animals very clean will also quickly get used to it. On a part of a covering establish a removable wooden board. On it the animal will lie or sit without harm for health. The free space with a concrete coating is necessary too. Running on it, the dog grinds off claws which will prevent it to go if not to do it.
The front wall is usually made of a grid or metal rods. It is undesirable to apply a chain-link as some dogs try to gnaw it, at the same time extend a wire and can injure teeth and a mouth. The grid, welded or woven, is usually framed, made of a metal corner. Thickness of a wire has to be not less than 5-6 mm.
If the wall is made of metal rods, then it is better to apply material of square section of 10х10 or 12х12 mm in size. It is possible to use also ridge fittings, but it loses on appearance. If the wall is executed from a framework, then they fasten to a framework or corners by means of electric welding.

If the owner decided to please the pet and to make dog enclosure the hands, then in the beginning it is necessary to decide on its sizes and the location. You should not have a construction on the backyard or in the most far corner of the site. For this purpose the place between gate and an entrance to the house will approach. It is desirable that by the open-air cage there did not pass the path as circulation of strangers irritates dogs, especially sentry.
Dimensions of a construction are chosen according to the sizes of a dog and, as a rule, make 6-10 m ². It is necessary to remember that captive keeping of a dog does not cancel and does not replace daily walks. When finding a dog the most part of muscles does not take part in its movement in limited space. Long stay in the open-air cage leads to the fact that some groups of muscles atrophy. If to let out such dog freely to run about, then with high probability he will be traumatized. Therefore it is necessary to take the choice of the sizes of the open-air cage seriously. Too big shelter will not bring benefit to an animal, and will lead to irrational use of the territory of the site.
