Benefits of Crate Training Your Dog
Dogs are instinctually drawn to dens because they desire a safe and secure place to call home. Properly trained dogs often prefer their den to relax and spend time.
Keeping your dog in a crate when you are unable to be by their side not only provides you peace of mind, but it also keeps your dog safe from potentially dangerous household items and locations.
Crates are a wonderful tool to help potty train your pet. Dogs rarely toilet in their den, but when a dog is left in a large area they are more likely to potty in a random location away from where they sleep.
All dog owners need a place for their pet when it is time to host that big party or when visitors arrive who aren't pet lovers. Crates are a great solution and serve to protect your pet as well as your guests.
Home away from Home
Crate-trained dogs consider the crate their home. By bringing their crate when away from home you will reduce your dog's anxiety when staying in unfamiliar surroundings.
If your dog is properly crate trained, they will be much more comfortable in situations where they are required to be crated. Airplane trips and stays at the groomer or veterinarian will be much more tolerable for all involved if your dog is properly crate trained.
