Most people get confused with the few differences between a cheap product and an expensive one, and that’s the case between the cheap dog crate and the fancy expensive dog crate.
We always seem to debate with ourselves whether the expensive product is worth it. Thus, is the cheap product not just cost-effective, but is it cheaply made as well? And we determine whether we want to spend our money on it.
As far as cheap dog crate options are concerned, more affordable is better in my opinion. For instance, they make almost all traditional plastic dog crates precisely the same way.
Most of them have similar features, come in the same sizes, and most of them are perhaps all made in the same plant in China. Then why is one more expensive than another? That is a question that many dog owners ask themselves regularly and cannot seem to find the right answer.
One reason, though, why an expensive dog crate would cost more than a cheap one is because the costlier product is more attractive to us.
Perhaps it is in a rear color that goes with our furniture. Maybe a professional designer from Europe created it. Who knows, but whatever the reason, it is more expensive usually because it looks relatively better or has a somewhat thicker plastic.
Though, unless you are trying to make some fashion statement in your house with a designer dog crate – why would you spend more than you have to on something that your Shih Tzu will use just for sleeping?
Dogs have endured for ages sleeping under the stars; therefore, any dog crate will be comfortable for your Shih Tzu.
Remember that the next time you visit the pet store and contemplate investing hundreds more than you need to in an expensive dog crate when you can find a cheap dog crate online for nearly half the price.
