If you’re thinking of getting a puppy or dog, then you’ve no doubt done some research on the best way to train them to ensure they’ll be a wonderful addition to your home. You only need to do a little research to know that kennels are the best and most successful way to train your pup in a matter of days. The reason it’s effective to teach your dog how to behave in a kennel is because when your pup is in a kennel, he’s less likely to get into something he shouldn’t be doing elsewhere in the house. Many puppies die from eating something poisonous in their first year. The kennel can keep your dog safe.

Some people think that kennels are cruel or cruel. Actually, if you get a kennel that is the right size for your dog, it will become a safe place for them to look forward to every day. Because dogs started out in caves and burrows, the kennel actually speaks to a dog’s instincts of wanting to be comfortably hidden in a small space. How to choose the right size doghouse? The general rule of thumb is that you want the crate to be large enough to allow the dog to stand up and turn around to eat. You don’t want to have a crate that is too big because then your dog could get anxious. Dogs find it easier to relax when they have enough room to stand.

When you finally decide on the right kennel, you will need some accessories to place inside it. If you have a puppy, to combat separation anxiety, put a blanket or towel that smells like you in the crate. Since dogs rely heavily on scent, this will remind them of you and comfort them. Also, when you start introducing your dog to the kennel, take your time.

You should not leave your dog alone in the kennel for many hours at first. You should gradually build to that amount of time. When you are getting your dog used to the kennel, he should only be supervised for short periods of time. If your dog starts barking or whining, redirect the dog’s attention and correct him. Only let them out of the cage after they have stopped barking or whining. If you let them out when they’re whining or barking, you’re creating a bad habit for them.
