However, used properly your dogs crate will come to be seen by him as a place of comfort and privacy: a place of his own to go to when he wants to sleep, or just wants timeout. There are many types of dog crates, and variations within the types. When looking for a crate for your puppy or dog remember this will be their home. Take some time to really search for the right type and size that would fit the dogs needs and yours.
Additional accessories such as a pad or a cushion can be added to the crate. It is necessary to take time getting your dog accustomed to it. Your dog has to be trained to get accustomed to the surroundings in the crate. It should not regard the crate as a means of punishment.
