Tips & Information About Crate Training
Crate training simplifies housetraining by keeping your puppy from eliminating in one end and sleeping in the other. While learning not to soil in the house, your puppy also learns to accept the crate as a safe, secure area. Dogs instinctively want a safe den or resting area, and usually learn not to soil it. A crate offers that security. Many crate trained dogs will tend to be less anxious when kenneled for any reason, whether at the groomer, veterinarian, or boarding facility, if they are already familiar with a crate or kennel environment. Remember, though, that puppies can't hold it for long so you can't leave your puppy in a crate for extended periods. Avoid leaving your dog crated for an excess of 4 hours at one time.
