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.
