Q & A: Crate Training

on May 7, 2012

Question: What is Crate Training?

Answer: Crate training is a wonderful tool when used properly to aid housetraining. Basic principle of crate training states that whenever you can not watch the puppy directly, the puppy should be crated. This does not mean placing a puppy in a crate and leaving him there. A good rule of thumb to go by: For every one month of life your puppy has, he can withstand one hour in the crate.

The crate should never be used as a punishment. The crate should be the correct size, big enough to stand up, turn around, and lay down comfortably, but not big enough that he go sit in a corner away from any potential mess.  The crate should be introduced early, although adults can certainly be crate-trained too.

A crate should be like your dog’s den, a safe place to rest, a comforting haven in times of stress. To accomplish this, the crate should never be a punishment, and it should be introduced gently, with many good things associated with it. A favourite toy, a comfortable blanket, or special treats should be reserved for crate time.

The crate is an ideal solution for dogs who suffer seperation anxiety, and dogs who get stressed out at the presence of visitors. Used correctly, a dog will learn to view his or her crate with comfort and safety.

Although it may seem cruel, both you and your dog will benefit greatly from the proper use of a crate. Proper use will ensure your dog is a happy, well-adjusted pooch, and your home will survive better. Dogs enjoy having their own space and like having their own “den.” The crate provides the dog with a place to den and relax.
