Crate Training Your Dog
Crate training your dog does not mean you will make your dog stay in the crate at all times. Crate training your dog can be used for short term management or training. For instance, if your dog is young and is not quite trained to behave around people then you may want to have him stay in his crate when company first arrives. If your dog happens to still be learning the rules of pottying outside then you may want him to stay in the crate at night to keep the floors clean and prevent accidents. Some owners may also use the crate as a time out while training their dog. A crate can be used for lots of different things. Some dogs simply prefer to hang out in their crate or sleep in it even with the door open. Ask your veterinary clinic Aurora, CO about crate training.
