Crate Training can be really easy for you and your dog, it is a great way to settle your dog down and get them sleeping really well as long as you do it the right way and teach them that the crate is a really safe, positive place for your dog to retreat to!
Follow these basic steps to help you along your way -
Praise your dog LOTS when he/she goes near the crate.
Feed them their meals in the crate so that they are busy thinking about eating instead of the environment they are in.
Put their favourite toys in the crate so that your dog wants to go in there and play with them.
