We buy our dogs rhinestone collars and call them our “babies”, yet many suburban owners lock dogs and puppies in crates in their homes for 18-23 hours each day while many dog industry experts and special interests, motivated by $50 Billion in greed, persuade America that “dogs love crates”. In Caged Love canine psychology and home dog training experts Ray & Emma Lincoln reveal how excessively many owners cage their dogs, the fact crate training is not the best or fastest way to housetrain puppies, and the fact that overcrating can damage dogs’ bodies, minds and bond with people. Throughout the book scientific research findings, expert opinions and a few memorable true case studies demonstrate how excessive crating causes hundreds of serious physical, emotional and behavioral symptoms including fear, aggression, “kennel-craze” and “doggie autism”, where dogs can’t bond properly with people and avoid human touch. Neurological studies also reveal isolation from stimuli during confinement can lower pups’ IQ, make dogs unfriendly and even cause dog bites. Caged Love offers easy & healthy alternatives, including instructions for housetraining, teaching house manners and rehabilitating dogs that suffered abuse in puppy mills or former homes. It’s hard to understand how people who care about their pet dogs could feel good locking them up most of each day in smaller dog crates than those used for laboratory dogs. Yet Caged Love identifies current societal factors, like high tech distractions and the real estate boom & bust that make owners vulnerable to the pro-crating myths popular on dog discussion groups and online dog communities. And classic psychology helps explain the growth of home crating and the fact that each year Americans buy 2-4 million pups bred in puppy mills- large-scale commercial breeders where dogs often suffer horrific abuse and years in tiny cages without seeing the sun. Not everyone in the dog industry cares about dogs’ best interests. And certain segments of the industry and beyond identified in this book benefit in the millions, and billions, from dogs’ and owners’ distress. For example, thousands of well-paid dog trainers (and even some animal shelter and rescue workers) push owners to cage dogs for motives they hide from the public. Caged Love points out the contradictions in quotes by some of America’s most influential dog people and refutes the biggest pro-crating myths with scientific facts. Dogs are social animals that suffer immensely in puppy mills and other cases of dog abuse detailed in this book. And dogs can’t thrive bored and immobile in cramped cages in owners’ homes. Dogs are bred to improve our quality of life, and Caged Love includes up-to-date examples of how dogs aid physical and emotional health. But excessive crating in critical early weeks can make puppies dislike their owners’ touch! The authors and many experts believe finding oneness with nature is a critical new frontier for our highest manifestation as humans, and pets serve as our ambassadors to nature. Yet it’s ironic discovering that it’s necessary to bond with dogs in the deepest ways, while families lose the essence of that bond by setting their dogs apart from them behind the wire bars of crates!Caged Love offers a compelling, yet scholarly combination of science, sociological theory and clinical observations. Free from emotional bias, the book strives to inspire further action & investigation by dog lovers: owners, behavior experts, scientists, veterinarians, journalists/media and government. This comprehensive expose may cause controversy, and dog lovers may feel disturbed learning how neighbors & friends cage dogs. But right now millions of dogs wait for their owners in cramped wire cages for 8-12 hours at a stretch, to again sleep in those cages, every night for life, sometimes spending only minutes a day free. And no dog lover would want this to continue! Read the rest of this entry »
