Crate training a puppy can be challenging. In this video we will give you 5 ways to help your dog love being inside their crate. A crate is a great place for your dog to be safe and comfortable when you can’t be supervising them. It’s a great way to make sure your puppy or dog is getting good information. And it’s also a good way to make sure they aren’t getting themselves into a dangerous situation. It also gives them somewhere to go in a busy household that they can relax. With kids, other dogs or other busy environments, sometimes your dog just needs a place to relax. A crate is a great place to do that. Teaching your dog to love being in their crate is also a really helpful way to potty train your puppy. It can help you stop them from peeing in the house, simply by allowing you to monitor what your puppy is doing all of the time. It really important that the time your puppy spends outside of their crate is quality time, spent with you!

Is your puppy destructive or disruptive when left home alone? Puppies can exhibit distressed behavior when their parents leave the house. Your fur baby has no idea when or IF you’ll ever come back. That’s enough to make anyone stress chew a whole couch! You can teach your pup to enjoy being left alone by creating a comfortable, secure environment. We’ll show you ways to help your puppy feel less anxious while you’re away so you can return to a calm canine…and an intact couch.

This tutorial is about effectively teaching a dog to enjoy spending time in their crate. This is usually the first task that most new puppy owners have to master. Proper crate training can prevent separation anxiety, help with house-training, and make life much easier for both the dog as well as the humans. However, this is not always an easy task but a calculated and patient approach goes a long way. For more information on crate training, please see my post on this topic on my website:

Get Your FREE E-Book That Reveals How to Toilet Train Your Puppy Quickly and Stop Biting and Chewing FAST!
Getting a puppy is really exciting, they bring such a happy, vibrant and fun energy into the home, even people who don’t like dogs very much find it hard to resist a lovely little puppy.
Puppies can also bring chaos into a house. Getting it right from the start and training your puppy correctly is crucial in order for your puppy to grow into a happy, fun-loving and obedient dog.
During this video you’ll learn step-by-step how to crate train your puppy easily and effortlessly. I show you exactly how to do it right, why doing repetitions is the key to success, how long to leave your puppy in the crate when doing the repetitions and essentially how to associate to your puppy that the crate is a really good place for them to be.
Some individuals think that crate training is wrong. I understand why some people may think this as I too questioned this method when we got our 2, 8 week male Parson Terrier littermates. My doubts were soon shattered when I saw how much they loved their crate and realized that most dogs love dens, they love the safe haven they provide and a place to call their own. A crate offers the perfect solution to creating a den for your dog.
Crate training is an essential ingredient to your puppy training success as it works with behaviours such as:
• Toilet/Potty Training
• Separation Anxiety
There are 2 main questions people ask me when buying a crate:
1) How big should the crate be?
2) What type of crate should I get?
Here’s the answers:
1) How big should the crate be?
When choosing a crate it needs to big enough for your dog to be able to stand up, turn around and lie down. Puppies tend to avoid soiling where they sleep so it’s important not to get a crate that is too big as this will potentially create a sleeping area and a toileting place for your puppy.
2) What type of crate should I get?
There are a range of different styles for you to choose from:
When you are unable to supervise your puppy because you’re physically or MENTALLY absent, it’s best to confine them somewhere safe where no harm can come to them or to your belongings. This sets your puppy up for success since unsupervised access to any part of your home — indoors or outdoors — provides too many opportunities for you puppy to make bad choices and house training (potty training mistakes).

When dogs start growling and nothing is done about it, generally it will get worse. In this video I address two French Bull Dogs that have escalated their bad behaviors into aggression. You need to catch this behavior early on or it will undoubtedly get worse. Any good dog training will tell you this!
