Why I Recommend Crate Training For Dogs

3 posts in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • Crate training your dog can be beneficial for housetraining, travel and overnight stays away from home
  • Crate training allows you to work with your dog’s natural den-dweller instincts and helps her learn how to spend time alone without feeling anxious
  • The first rule of crate training is to never force your dog into or out of his crate
  • The second rule is to make everything about the crate a positive experience
  • Crate training a fearful or crate-averse dog will be a slower process requiring gentle persistence

we tried but none of our dogs would stay. our first Airedale and Brewster both escaped the crate. Brewster has it down to a science takes him about 3 seconds to open it. he does go in at night for a bit

We never tried with any of our dogs until Logan (our last husky) and it didn't work for him, Tried next with Chase (the lab) and he would go in but wasn't happy although I was thankful that we had introduced it to him since he ended up having to recuperate from 5 leg surgeries. Dex was 5 when we got him and had never seen a crate so we never tried.
