Crate Training 101
Dogs instinctively nest. They seek sheltered places, mark their territory to ward off interlopers, and dig shallow beds in the ground so as to keep warmer at night. Your pup retains some of that instinct. Trouble is, he’s not living in the wild. He’s likely living in your living room! And you don’t want him pawing at the furniture or trying to dig himself a little spot of refuge in your carpet or hiding away in the entertainment center!
What you need to keep your pup feeling safe, secure, and contented is a space within your home that he can call his own. And nothing fits the bill like a crate from MidWest, the largest home builder for pets headquartered in the United States.
MidWest manufactures crates for dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. Dogs love ’em! And so do dog lovers, or we’d never have stayed in business all these decades, let alone achieved our success in the marketplace.
That said, your pup has to be trained to recognize the crate you choose for him as his home. Otherwise, he’ll pick a “nesting place” for himself, and it may not be to your liking! Training your pup isn’t necessarily difficult. But not all pups take to it – which may call for another solution. Don’t worry. We’ve got all sorts of comfortable solutions to satisfy you and your pup if a crate isn’t the answer. To help you decide, we offer the following articles:
