Dog crates are useful, it can be your life saving tool in the time of emergency. Having a new puppy or an old adult dog being adopted to your care means that you have just successfully acquired a new family member and the process of them learning the rules of the household will start and the process of adjustment can actually take quite a time. An important factor here when it comes to having a new family member is being consistent. Consistency is a prime factor here, be consistent always around your dogs with your choices of movement, gestures and words and also repeat all of the same things over and over again around them or in front of them so that in the end they would be familiar with what those gestures, movement and words mean. The key to winning the opinion of a new family member is your patience. To lose your patience with your new family members and your dogs is going to take you a while back of training them since dogs don’t like being angered at. It is important to keep in your heads that if you stay calm then the your dog will also stay calm which in turn will actually create a good bond of confidence and trust between the two of you.
The personality of the dog is the last factor here but it does not mean that it’s the least important but actually its at the same level as the rest. Each dog has a different unique personality from the rest and it is important to remember that each dog has also an different learning style and this can also either lengthen or shorten the required amount of time that a dog needs to learn how to get into their crates. Introducing your dog to a dog crate. If you have a dog crate then you should start by bringing the crate to the room that you always spend time in. It is best to put a soft blanket inside, sit down beside the crate and propping the dog crate door to open with your body so that it won’t swing and scare your dog. After introducing your dog in his dog crate then after you should start feeding his meals inside of it. We now move on to lengthening the time that the dog is inside of his crate. Once he is already starting to eat his meals inside then you can start lengthening his stay inside the dog crate through putting him inside and staying there for quite a while and leaving for a period of time and come back and open it up if he is quiet and if he is not then don’t open it until he’s quiet.
