Dog crates are used to help puppies learn to be left alone or helping with toilet training. They can also be used for short-term confinement, if you are not around to supervise them.
We recommend a medium size crate (36") with a divider so the crate can grow with the puppy. Ie; use the divider when the PWD is a puppy and remove when the puppy requires more space.
Just like puppies feel safe and at home in their crate, a dog bed is a place where adult dogs can feel safe and secure.
We've found great dog beds at Costco and our local Home Sense & Winners.
Elevated Dog Cot
Our PWD's prefer an elevated dog cot over a dog bed, as the elevated surface keeps air circulating underneath, which helps them stay cool.
There is no need to have both a dog bed and an elevated dog cot. Choose either one.
The Halti dog head collar works great to reduce pulling. A Halti should be used in conjunction with training not as a substitute for training.
We recommend a size small for puppies and a size medium for adult dogs.
