Why Crate Training?
The purpose of crate training your dog is to teach your dog to go into its crate (a rectangular enclosure which acts as a substitute for a den) on command for safety, obedience and general behaviour control.
Dogs like crates, the same way dogs like going under tables, on sofas, or on beds. The crate also provides your dog with a place where it is comfortable and secure.
Dogs generally do not like to soil their resting area. Therefore a crate is highly effective in house training your dog.
Crate training your dog is also useful when you travel with your dog as a crate can be used to transport your pet dog safely.
Overall, it is an effective training method used successfully by many dog owners and trainers alike.
