Introduction to Crate Training
Your dog can be relaxed, calm, and quiet when confined!
Presented By: Gayle Watkins PhD
Audience: Puppy Owners
Available On Demand
Every dog training book and website tells you that dogs like their crates. Trainers and friends regale you with tales about how much their dog loves to be in its crate. They say that, like wolves, dogs are den animals and are comforted by small spaces.
So why is your puppy crying, barking its head off in the crate? Is everyone lying to you or do you have the only dog in the world that HATES the crate?
Neither! The real answer is that puppies and dogs quickly learn to like their crate, if given the chance, but it takes some effort. Your friends and trainers probably do not remember the week or two that it took to make their puppy relaxed and quiet in its crate. They just remember the outcome, a dog that loves its crate!
This course will teach you how to turn your howling little puppy that is demanding to be let out of the crate into one that happily goes into the crate and quietly relaxes there until it either needs to potty or you let it out. This will not happen overnight but with training, consistency, and patience your puppy will learn to happily spend time in its crate. So let’s get started creating your puppy’s love for its crate!
This class is included in Puppy College,ABCM Platinum, and ABCM Platinum Plus Memberships.
