If you’ve got a puppy in your life, you probably know that training a dog can be a challenge. But there are ways to make life easier for both of you.
“Private room with a view. Ideal for traveling dogs or for those who just want a secure, quiet place to hang out at home.”
That’s how your dog might describe his crate. It’s his own personal den where he can find comfort and solitude while you know he’s safe and secure—and not shredding your house while you’re out running errands.
Crate training uses a dog’s natural instincts as a den animal. A wild dog’s den is his home, a place to sleep, hide from danger, and raise a family. The crate becomes your dog’s den, an ideal spot to snooze or take refuge during a thunderstorm.
A crate isn’t a magical solution. If not used correctly, a dog can feel trapped and frustrated.
