10 Tips for Crate Training your Dog

It’s not difficult to teach your dog to happily settle in a crate, and to guide you, here are 10 tips for quick and effective crate training.

  1. Choose a suitable crate for your dog when he is fully grown. It may appear to be too large for your baby puppy, and will be more costly than a small crate, but your canine companion isn’t going to be that little forever.  Buying a big crate will spare you further expense in the future, because youwon’t need to purchase a larger crate when your dog grows out of his smaller crate.  Keep in mind as well where you plan on keeping the crate. Dog crate furniture provides an alternative to the wire and plastic crates typically purchased but serves as a piece of your furniture as well as a crate.
