Crate Training

It can be easy to be lax on your puppy when its small and cute. But if you don’t train it from the beginning, correcting their misbehaviors later in life will be considerably difficult. Crate training is a great method for training your puppy and establishing good habits. It also gives them a safe place where they can retreat if they need to. The crate must be big enough for them to turn around in comfortably. Crate training helps establish good habits, such as, to chew on the toys provided and not other household items that might harm them, such as wires.

Helpful Tips

  • Be Consistent
  • Spend as much time with your puppy as possible.
  • Put the crate in an area where the family spends a lot of time.
  • Heaps of encouragement work better than negative words.
  • Feed and water the puppy in the crate with the door open.
  • Build the amount of time in the crate slowly and age appropriate.
  • Use the crate for confinement as little as possible.

First Impressions are important. Do your best to make your puppy’s crate feel like home so he views it as a positive experience.
