Crate Training a Puppy
This video is shareable from my Youtube channel.
This video is a tutorial that discusses how to crate train a puppy. Keep in mind that every puppy progresses at their own rate. If your puppy exhibits signs of stress or anxiety go back to a more basic exercise. The key to effective training is to build on success. You will know that you are pushing criteria too fast if they exhibit stress whining, frustrated barking, loss of appetite, appear dis-engaged, start biting or pawing inside the closed door crate, begin stress panting, drooling or involuntarily urinate or defecate. Once properly conditioned, the crate should offer a place of security, rest and relaxation.
