Crate Training for Your Puppy

Crate training for your puppy can be successfully performed if you follow some rules that in the end will result in something beneficial for both you and your puppy. The first thing that you must be aware of is that your puppy is brought within a new space which is not familiar to him, this is why he needs to feel secure and stress free when he comes in contact with his new home. For the successful house training, choose a good technique for your puppy. It is recommended to stick to a single technique and not a combination of two or several others because your puppy will become confused.

Let's see the simple technique that you should stick to:

* Perform a crate training after you have bought a suitable dog crate from a reputable retailer. Once the crate is selected you must present this one to your puppy. Decorate the inside space of the crate with a blanket on which you put some chew toys that will be kept there. These items must belong to that space making it be more secure for the puppy's environment and his innermost feelings.

* Setting the schedule. When you put the puppy into this space, do not leave him more than one hour for the first time. Do not forget that in this period of his life he uses to urinate a lot, so keep this in mind and do not leave him too long in there. He might start whining but stick to keeping him in there and do not take him out, otherwise he will get confused and make the training harder for both you and him.

* When the time has come to take him out for peeing, explain to him why you do this for and when he pees praise him and reward him to make him understand this in better terms and not by forcing. If you start scolding him for peeing or poop-ing in wrong places he won't understand what is happening and you make the things only worse. He should be learned that it is not a good idea to relieve where he sleeps, therefore taking him out for these needs he will be learned that the crate is only for resting and not doing other things.

These rules should be followed with consistency and on the same technique, because for puppies it is very important to maintain a single method of training if you want him to undertake the training successfully. In this way you can ensure the crate training a success while your puppy will become happy with this place seeing it as his own space where he can enjoy spending his time and not get scared by it. More than these, he will see the crate as a safe environment for him where he can retreat whenever he feels like resting and have a time of his own in an intimacy that keeps him safe.
