Dog: Crate Training Your Puppy

A crate is a terrific investment for a number of reasons. A crate can help you with:
House-training: Teaches your puppy to keep the home clean.
Chew training: Stops your puppy from chewing anything except legitimate chew toys.
Settling: Encourages your puppy to settle down when he’s alone.
Kenneling: Your puppy may need to stay in a crate during travel or a hospital visit.
