Crate Training Dogs & Puppies- FAQ
1) Why should I crate train my dog?
2) How does crate training work?
3) What about housebreaking older dogs?
4) How long do I need to use the crate?
5) How safe is crate training?
6) I was told that dogs like their crates, so why do I have to force mine inside?
Again, make sure the crate is in a good location. Veterinarians and trainers recommend covering the crate to give your dog the privacy he needs to feel secure. If your dog can see you, he'll want to be with you outside the crate. Crate covers lower the number of distractions your dog sees, which reduces barking and stress. Note: Dogs that suffer from separation anxiety should not be crated. If you feel your dog is suffering from separation anxiety and is showing clinical signs, please avoid crating him until speaking to a professional.
