They say that the Crate Training method is the most effective way to train dogs. How do we crate train our dogs? Is it harsh to confine a dog or an adorable puppy in solitary confinement so to speak? Crate Training was once seen as cruel and inhumane but it has gain popularity in recent years. Crate Training can be a useful tool to train a puppy or even a stubborn old dog.

The crate can be a place of sanctuary and security when needed by our dogs. There are people who find success in doing crate training but there are also dog owners that find it so hard to do crate training with their dogs. A simple reason why this happens could be a dog’s past negative experience, such as being left in a small cage or crate for a long period of time, or having the crate used as a punishment. We need to fully understand that inorder to be successful in crate training we need to let our dogs understand that the crate is for his sanctuary, retreat or his den.

What are the advantages of crate training? The thought of leaving your dog alone in your house having a peace of mind that he won’t destroy any personal or household items would be one very good advantage of crate training, especially for those dog owners who are always out. Whenever you leave your home you will be assured that somehow your dog will not ruin anything inside your house since he is confined in his crate You can also attain a better relationship with your dog by anticipating and preventing unwanted behaviors whenever you are not around to supervise him.

With Crate Training, housebreaking your dog will be much easier and faster. A dog can now have a safe and cozy place that he can call his home. Dogs naturally have that instinct where they have to seek out for a shelter. Your dog can now have security and privacy while relaxing in his crate after a strenuous activity. After you successfully crate train your dog, he will know when to go outside his cage to do elimination. You will be having a peaceful environment once you crate train your dog because he will have fewer behavioral problems like unnecessary barking and chewing.

Another advantage of crate training is during traveling, it would be easy and safe for your dog and also for you since inside the crate he will not be able to play with you while you are driving. It will also serve as a mobile indoor dog house which you can move from one location to another whenever you want. Crate training helps teach your dog to have bladder and bowel control. He learns to hold it and go at right scheduled times, instead of going whenever he feels like it.

I would like to share to you the wonderful advantages of crate training and also the steps on how to do this. And you will then know why crate training is the ultimate dog training method.
