Why do we crate our puppies?
If dog crates were designed to look like little dog houses, it might be easier to convince people that they’re — not — cages! First, let’s talk about what a crate really is and how they can improve your relationship with your dog.
Long ago, when dogs were still wild animals, they often slept in dens – shallow holes they dug in the ground hidden away in places where they felt safe from predators. These were small, dark places, just big enough to turn around in and to lie down comfortably.
Even after centuries of selective breeding and living in people’s homes, dogs still retain some of their ancient instincts. One of these instincts is the desire to have a den – a small, cozy place of their very own where they can feel safe and secure.
A “crate” is just a modern version of a den. In other words, it’s a dog house within your house. Just as you enjoy having your own room where you can go for peace and privacy, your dog likes having his own room, too!
What can I do to ease my puppy
Puppies are still young and can be easily over-stimulated. The most important thing to remember in the first few days is to make sure your new puppy has access to plenty of water, and that it is eating well. Ensure the dog only plays a limited amount of time with plenty of crate time for rest.
