Crate Train Your Puppy

If you are thinking about getting a new puppy, you should really prepare for this because you might have to deal with a lot. There are many puppies who are untrained and they cause really big messes at home. When you get a puppy, you should be sure that you love and care for it because it is going to be a part of your family. You should always make your puppy feel safe and secure when they are with you. If you would like to learn how you can crate train your puppy, we are going to give you simple steps that you can follow to be able to do that. Let us find out how you can get to train your puppy to stay in a crate.

Always make sure that you get a crate that is comfortable and big enough for your puppy to stand and lie down inside. Once you have a good crate for your pup, you can start to associate it with them. Your puppy should be used to the crate before you start putting them inside of it. Your puppy might not like to enter the crate and if they do not want to, you can bribe them with food. Make sure that they do not do their potty in those crates as that can turn them away from wanting to enter the crate. Keep those crates in a quiet place where there is no noise and things that can scare your puppy like places near the road.

If you would like to train your puppy to stay in the crate for some time, you should never rush this training. You can start with putting your puppy into those crates, closing the door for a few seconds and then open it. Start gradually making each time the puppy gets into the crate lates longer and longer. If your puppy does not like it when you leave, you can walk few steps back and then return. Do this constantly until you can get to leave your puppy in the crate and be gone for quite some time. A common mistake that many puppy owners make is that they will leave their puppy in the crate on their first day and they can traumatize your puppy and make them really hate that crate.
