Tips on crate training your dog

Crate training is an effective method of house-training your dog and can keep a new dog safe from an area that may be a danger to him in a new house or environment.

A crate can either be metal of plastic they come in various sizes and you should always make sure that you have the right size in order for your dog to feel comfortable and calm. All pet stores have crates and the price varies depending on the size of your dog. Many dogs and puppy's see a crate as there own persona cave and feel very comfortable in it and prefer to sleep in it at night, although you can put the crate close to you at night to help stop any separation anxiety. You also use the crate during the day if you have to leave for an extended period of time. When house training if you choose a metal crate I would suggest you put a blanket over the top of it to create a den like atmosphere. The dog should be able to stand up in the crate as well as stretch out and sleep. Remember puppies grow up fast so you should by a crate based on the size that your dog will be when full grown.

Getting him used to the crate starts with; first making the crate a nice inviting place for him. Soft bedding and his favorite chew toy. Leave the door open and try to get him to go in voluntarily, and get him to stay either with a toy or food reward. Leave the door open the first few times. Once he is starting to do this close the door for a few minutes, extending the time that you leave the door closed, pretty soon he will go in by himself to escape the noise, retreating instead to the safety and comfort of his new den.
