How to Use Puppy Training Crates 

 

Puppies are cute, but they can also be a huge responsibility. If you have a new puppy, you’ll want to make sure they learn how to behave in your home and that they’re not destroying your belongings.  

 

One way to do this is by crate training them: teaching them that their crate is a safe place where they can go when they need some time alone or feel anxious.  

 

Crate training is an essential part of any puppy’s routine, so all pet owners should consider doing it with their new puppies. Here are some tips for using puppy training crates effectively: 

 

Puppy Training Crates Are Not Cruel 

 

It’s important to remember that crate training is a humane way to house-train your puppy. 

If you begin using your puppy’s crate correctly from day one, along with positive reinforcement techniques such as treats, they will see it as his own private space where he can relax and feel safe.  

How to train a puppy in a crate 

Begin Your Crate Training Slowly 

 

When you’re first beginning crate training, it’s important to start slowly. Start with a small crate, and make sure your puppy is comfortable in the crate. If you go too fast or put your puppy in a large crate too soon, he may be afraid of it. That can make crate training more complicated than necessary. 

 

To help get your puppy used to his new home away from home, use treats and toys as rewards when he goes into the crate on his own free will or when you gently coax him inside. 

 

 

 

Use a Crate When You Need to Leave Your Puppy Alone 

 

When you need to leave your puppy alone, they can be very destructive. A crate is a perfect solution for keeping your puppy safe when you are not home or cannot watch them closely. 

However, if properly introduced to a crate at an early age (before eight weeks), most puppies will quickly learn that the crate means safety and security instead of danger and discomfort! 

 

Use a Crate During Potty Training 

 

A crate is an excellent tool for potty training; a crate helps your puppy learn to control their bathroom habits by confining them when you can’t supervise them.  

If you’re away from home for long periods, your puppy can relieve itself in the crate on a potty pad without having an accident or getting into trouble while you’re gone. 

 

Don’t Force Your Puppy Into Their Crate 

 

It is important that you don’t force your puppy into its crate. This will only scare your puppy and make them not want to go near the crate again. It’s also important that you do not use the crate as punishment for bad behavior or misbehavior.  

 

Let Your Puppy Warm Up to Their Crate 

 

To make the transition from a puppy that is afraid of its crate to an adult dog that enjoys and seeks out its safety and comfort, you need to give your puppy time to get comfortable with its new home.  

 

With these tips, you can start allowing your puppy to use their crate in the best possible way.
