Dog Crates. Wednesday , February 07th , 2018 - 16:36:07 PM
They allow dogs to become accustomed to being out of sight of their masters, and teaches them to hold their bladders until a designated bathroom break. Crates are also very desirable for transporting dogs in cars. Crate training is a somewhat lengthy, involved process, and a full explanation is outside the scope of this article. Here we will simply present a basic guide to choosing a dog crate and how to begin the crate training process. When buying your first dog crate, your first consideration is size.
Dont force the dog into its crate right away rather, lure it in with treats or toys. Even once the dog has entered the crate, you should not seal it in immediately. Wait until the dog seems comfortable in the crate you want this space to be a safe haven, not a prison. By the same token, dont use yelling, hitting, or other negative conditioning techniques to try to train your dog. Dogs, like people, will always respond much more effectively to positive reinforcement. You must also be as consistent as possible in maintaining your rules.
If you shout at your dog or smack him and then put him into his crate he will see his crate as a place to be feared: those associations are the last thing you want to create. You dont want your puppy to toddle off into a corner of his crate to go to the toilet, so get a crate with a divider. This can be moved as he grows, and discarded once he is grown and/or completely housetrained. If you are getting a dog crate as a bed for a dog that is already fully grown, make sure the crate is big enough for him to stretch out, stand up and turn around comfortably.
