Why Crate Training?
Using a crate draws on your puppy’s preference for small spaces. It’s not “jailing” him (and don’t use it as punishment). Instead, think of it more like a den for your pup — a small, enclosed space that offers him security.
Plus, if he’s trained correctly, he’ll spend time in the crate when you’re out of the house, which will set some boundaries as well as keep him from going potty on the carpet. Dogs don’t usually like to go in the same place they sleep.
