Small crates are good for transporting a nervous Nelly to the veterinarian, or for long road trips when you want to give your dog more freedom to move around than some other restraint options provide. Crates can also feel like a safe haven for toy breeds that might be overwhelmed by a large car interior. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recommends a crate where your dog can easily sit, stand, turn around and stretch out, so take your little tyke with you to the pet store and let him give it a test run before purchasing. Don't forget to fasten the crate into the backseat with a seatbelt. It's also a good idea to put a cushion inside the crate as extra padding to soften any bumps in the road.
