Dog crates : the advantages of crate training your dog
All dogs have a natural tendency to seek out the comfort and security of a den. Providing your puppy or dog with an indoor dog crate kennel will satisfy their need for a safe, den-like enclosure. In addition to being an ideal housebreaking tool, a dog crate can reduce separation anxiety, prevent destructive behavior, and keep a puppy away from dangerous household chemicals and electrical wires.
It usually only takes 2 to 3 weeks of working with a dog crate for a puppy to be successfully house trained. Once a dog is housebroken, a crate can be left open all the time; your dog will continue to use it as his or her own private refuge.
