How to Crate Training a Puppy
steps of crate training a puppy
- Buy an appropriately sized crate for your dog. It needs to be big enough for him to stand, turn around and lie down comfortably. If you are intending to use the box to potty train, it is important that your dog crate is not too big. This will encourage dog to start “handle it.”
- If you want to make your more comfortable pet, you can buy a soft bed to put your dog inside the box. For potty training, use a towel that can be easily removed and washed instead of an expensive bed.
- Place the box in a central location in your home where your dog will be able to see what’s going on around you. If you want to keep it puppy in his crate at night, avoid putting the box in your room. This encourages dog to cry for you to let it out.
- Let your dog out right before you box it up to reduce the likelihood of accidents.
- You better come up with a word of command for your dog to get in your grill. To teach this, just say the word you choose, “crate” or “go to bed” work well, every time you put your dog in his crate. Eventually he will associate the command with the act of entering your grill. After your dog is inside the box, praise him to hear.
- Once your dog is in his crate, leave the room. If he cries or barks, do not try to comfort him. This will only reward negative behavior and teach you, making enough noise, it will draw attention, or even be left out of the crate.
