Crate Training, A Den within a Den (Part 1)

This is going to be the first of three tips discussing Crate Training. Please stay tuned for more after this...

Your dog thinks of your home as his den. For many dogs, a house or apartment is too large and can be the source of unwanted stress and confusion.
A dog that is properly introduced to a crate will view it as his or her own sanctuary.

Some important points:

  • A crate should not be considered a substitute for training and supervised.
  • A dog should not be crated for longer than 4 – 8 hours depending on age and bladder size and strength.
  • A crate should be only large enough for a dog to stand up, lay down comfortably and turn around.
  • A crate should never be used as punishment.
