The family dog can be such a great member of your family. Just like children though, if they are not well behaved, then you will have a tough time taking them out in public, or even having company over. Take the time to read this article and use some of the tips listed here to get your pet on the road to obedience.
While training your puppy or dog to use a crate, introduce him to new concepts slowly and gradually, so he is able to adjust to the changes without feeling stressed. Once they have grown accustomed to being in the crate with the gate open, try closing the gate and feeding them small treats through the crate. Begin by leaving the dog in the crate for about ten seconds, then increase that time by small increments. If they get upset, it’s too fast.
