Dog Training Miami FL

Your dog's crate should be used as his retreat or "sanctuary.'' It should never be used as the place to put your dog when it is being punished. Use a separate space if you wish to put your dog in "time out'' for misbehaving. Experts can help you learn about best practices for dog obedience training.

Dog Training

By Elizabeth Mason Woods for WebVet

There is so much to learn when you get a new puppy . Crate training your puppy or dog is an excellent way to teach it good behavior and create a comforting space for it. Crate training can also make housetraining your puppy easier.

Crate training:

  • Helps teach your dog proper behavior (e.g. chewing and elimination habits)
  • Prevents damage to your furniture and other possessions while you're away or sleeping
  • Provides a comfortable, secure place for your dog
  • Makes traveling with your pet easier
  • Makes stays at the veterinary hospital or kennel easier and less stressful for your dog.
  • Helps your dog better understand his place in the household hierarchy

Important things to know

Before you begin crate training your dog, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Make sure the crate is large enough for your dog to stand up, turn around and lay down comfortably.
  • Place the crate in a room where there is activity, (e.g., your family room) because dogs are social animals and will otherwise feel isolated.

Your dog's crate should be used as his retreat or "sanctuary.'' It should never be used as the place to put your dog when it is being punished. Use a separate space if you wish to put your dog in "time out'' for misbehaving.

Start early by crate training puppies

It's best to begin your puppy's crate training early so it has ample time to adapt to the crate.
