Crate training is a great way to help your new puppy become house trained, acclimate to their new habitat, and establish a consistent routine. Training your puppy to spend time in their crate takes advantage of a dog’s natural den instinct, providing a safe place for fido to rest and recharge.

Each puppy goes through crate training at a different rate. Some puppies are completely crate trained in just a few days, while others may take a few months to feel comfortable spending time in their crate. While the time it takes can vary, the process itself is simple.
