How to crate train your puppy (or dog)

How do I crate train my pup? It’s a common question we get from many pet owners and our behavior expert Liv Hagen has four steps to set you and your pup up for crate training success.

Although crate training is most common with puppies, adult dogs can be crate trained too. Crate training makes it easier to supervise your dog and prevents your pup from having complete access to the house where they could get into mischief. It also helps with housetraining, because dogs have a natural tendency not to soil their den or sleeping area. But many people don’t know where to start when it comes to crate training.

Animal Humane Society Behavior Modification and Rehabilitation Manager Liv Hagen shows us four steps to help you and your pup get started with crate training.
