Puppy Crate Training

Crate training is one of the best methods to teach your puppy good behavior and provide them with a safe space.


It should be spacious enough for them to stand, turn around, and lie down comfortably, but not too large to prevent accidents.

Choosing the Crate

Begin with short, positive interactions with the crate. Encourage your puppy to enter with treats and toys, and gradually increase the time they spend inside.

Training Steps

Place their food and water bowls inside and, after they finish eating, allow them to exit the crate for play and bathroom breaks.

Mealtime in the Crate

Ensure your puppy has a bathroom break before bedtime and provide them with comfort items, like a blanket or a soft toy.

Nighttime Training

As your puppy becomes more comfortable with the crate, gradually extend the time they spend inside.

Gradual Independence

With patience, consistency, and positive reinforcement, your puppy will quickly adapt to their crate.
