Causes and how to treat crated dog syndrome

Crate dog syndrome, or confinement anxiety, is a condition in which a dog becomes anxious, fearful, or distressed when confined in a crate or small space. This anxiety can lead to excessive barking, chewing, and urinating in the crate, as well as destructive behavior such as digging and scratching at the walls of the crate. The primary cause of crate dog syndrome is prolonged confinement and a lack of exposure to social activities and people.

How to treat caged dog syndrome

Caged dog syndrome is a behavior disorder caused by extended confinement of a dog. To treat caged dog syndrome, it is important to provide dogs with ample opportunities for activity and stimulation. This includes engaging in play, going on walks, engaging in training and teaching new behaviors, playing with new toys and interacting with other animals. Additionally, providing the dog with a comfortable, stimulating environment with ample room to move around and explore can help to relieve the stress and boredom associated with the syndrome. 

Even among pet lovers, there are often differences of opinion on the best way to treat their beloved pets. Every pet owner has their own opinion.

In this case, for a pet dog for example, whether it is better to keep it in a cage or leave it without a cage.

Keeping a dog in a cage is not a problem, although some say that it is better to let it loose in the house and put on a collar only occasionally at certain times, namely when there are strangers or guests in the house or when the dog is taken out of the house.

Keeping a dog in a kennel is fine, but you should not let it stay in the kennel for long and you should take your pet dog out of the kennel regularly.

After all, a pet or beloved pet must have its own home or cage. Always keep the cage clean and also the cleanliness of the pet itself.

Also pay attention when the dog is released or when taken for a walk, so that the floor is clean from things that are harmful to dogs, such as small bones lying on the floor which if eaten by dogs can cause choking and so on.

Always supervise the dog when released outside the cage to always avoid unwanted things, such as eating anything and so on.

It is recommended that pet dogs be trained from a young age to be obedient by being given obedience training treatment, which can be done by giving the dog’s favorite treats after he is willing and able to carry out commands.

That way, they can be released without a cage, especially for large dogs that should be kept outside the cage, or at least make or provide a large enough cage so that the dog can still move freely even though it is in a cage. Every pet owner or animal keeper wants the best for their beloved pet.
