DogGear Philosophy

The shining star of this review is the iDog launcher. This unit has five different distance settings, as opposed to three on the other systems. It’s well priced, and the balls are easily interchangeable with standard tennis balls. The DogGear team members love the remote control and the fact that it comes standard with rechargeable batteries.

Where Should I Put a Dog Crate in My House?

A good rule of thumb is to put the dog crate in a busy part of your home. Your dog is a social animal and you don’t want them to feel isolated and away from the group because that could cause them to dislike being in their crate. The family room and the kitchen are both great places to put your dog crate.

But, make sure to put the crate in an area of the home that will have a consistent temperature. You don’t want your dog to get overheated or chilly. Be mindful of whether there are vents or windows around the crate that will affect your dog.

If your dog is a new puppy, consider leaving the crate in your bedroom at night to ease their transition into your home. Remember, they are likely used to sleeping with their mother and siblings at night. Sleeping in isolation can come as a shock and lead to whining and crying.
