Does your dog need a crate?
There are plenty of discussions about whether your dog needs a crate or not. First of all, we need to understand what the crate is for.
If your dog is insecure and somewhat scared of new things then the crate is needed for helping your dog feel protected and secure. It's not about training or knowing where your friend is during the night, but having the understanding that your small friend needs a place where to rest and hide when they feel overwhelmed. When they don't have that kind of place, they get anxious and start to bark.
For all small dogs, the crate is a must-have. Since they are small, they get easily scared. You’ve probably noticed how they are afraid of large spaces, loud noises, small children, etc. Something not to forget about when you're adopting a dog, is that you need to offer them protection - from now on, it is your responsibility. Providing your dog a safe place, their personal space, where to hide when the noise is overwhelming helps your dog to live a stress-free life.
To summarise - buying the crate for your dog has nothing to do with you or how you feel. As a dog owner and a proud mom/dad, you should think about whether your dog has a place to hide if needed. Put yourself into your dogs “shoes” - when a party gets loud or kids want to cuddle with you and you do not want to, what do you feel like doing?
