This is a cage for new-born babies and their mother.
The temperature is perfectly controlled by air-conditioner and a fan inside.
The cage is made of a container, in which the temperature is continuously controlled.
During mealtime, small cages for each baby are prepared to separate the space.
A hot carpet is placed under the floorboard, so that the room is kept warm even in winter.
This is a cage where puppies, who are older than toddlers, and their mother live. Although the outside of the cage looks an ordinary square box, the inside has various accessary tools such as partitions to separate the space into small ones.
When the door on the back side is closed, the left back part is completely separated to make a small room.
When the time for puppies to be separated from their mother has come, the mother starts trying to keep the puppies away. In this cage, there is a low fence between the space for puppies and one for their mother. The mother can go back and force between the two spaces, but puppies can’t because they can’t jump over the fence.
In winter, a hot carpet is placed under the floorboard in each cage. For puppies who need to be in a warmer environment, a hood is set in front of the cage and another hot carpet is placed there.
For puppies, hot carpets, electric stoves and air-conditioners and other cooling and warming devises are used to control the temperature for 24 hours a day.
