Many new dog owners come to me on a daily basis and ask lots of questions about create training, this is perfectly normal. In fact, the general public who does not study up on proper dog training may not even have heard of crate training before. To sum up what a dog crate is: It is simply an enclosed caged area that will prevent the dog from leaving the confines of the cage.

Crate training can be done inside of the house with an indoor dog crate or even outside in the back yard with a home-made caged area for the dog. Of course you will want the inside to have plenty of room as crate training should not be done in a small overly tight manner.

What are the benefits of crate training? There are quite a few reasons why using a crate to aid in dog training has its merits. One reason would be because a crate will prevent your dog from chewing up the inside of your house while you are away. This type of crate training, by leaving the dog alone inside, should only be used temporarily until the dog learns not to chew anything outside of the crate.

Another example of when using a crate is useful is if you are traveling in your vehicle for any extended period of time. A small hand held crate with your dog inside of it will help ease his fear and excitability if he has any sort of issues with traveling.

Last but not least, crate training can be used as a perfect aid in teaching the dog how to be house broken. Many methods of dog training are used and taught by professional dog trainers when it comes to house training a puppy, and most all of them will recommend some form of crate training if requested.
