Initial thoughts on crate training.


Crate training uses a dog’s natural instincts as a den animal.
Your training is going well if your dog enters his crate on his own and enjoys spending time in it.
The biggest mistake people make in using a dog crate is skipping the training part.
Your dog will not automatically know what a crate is. Do not bring a crate home and just stick your dog in it. Doing this is not associating a positive experience with the crate.
If you do this, you should expect your dog to be confused. He could even end up fearing his new den.
Teach your dog that his crate is a comfortable, fun place for him to stay.
A crate is a sort of playpen for your dog. It keeps him safe. You should have toys and cozy blankets in it. When you, the parent, have to pay attention to other things, it’s a perfect place to keep him.
