A crate is a safe spot that belongs only to your puppy. We recommend that while in training any time your puppy is not being supervised they are in their crate.
Your puppy should always have a safe and quiet place for their crate.
A crate should be big enough to allow your puppy to comfortably sit, lay, stand, and turn around. Purchase a crate with a divider so that your crate can accommodate a growing puppy.
We recommend having your puppy sleep in their crate overnight and whenever you are unable to directly supervise them. This allows them to better transition to house and potty training.
Please take your pet outside immediately before and after being in their crate to help establish potty training routines.
Provide lots of activity and exercise before long intervals of crating so that your puppy will be able to enjoy some time in their crate to rest.
Make your crate a comfortable environment for your puppy. Soft blankets or a crate pad is a great idea for your puppy to cuddle up and sleep. Providing a soft toy and a stuffed Kong will make crate time rewarding for your puppy.
