Why Crate Train My Dog?Written by Jenny Saylor
Continued from page 1
Puppies have very small bladders so they cannot physically hold it for very long. I would suggest that you take puppy out every two hours. As puppies get older, naturally they will gain bladder control and be able to hold it longer. Eventually this time should increase to 8 hours or more.
Another thing to consider when purchasing a crate is to make sure that you buy a crate big enough to accommodate full growth of your pet. When your pet is a puppy and you are crate training, make sure that crate has a divider panel. You can adjust placement of divider panel so that puppy does not have full use of crate thus creating “den” feeling that will make your dog feel comfortable and cozy. In this situation dog will not want to go in its den and will keep area clean. If you give puppy full area of crate it may be too large and dog will make one area of crate his potty area and other area as his sleeping area. Adjust divider panel so that dog has enough area to get up and stretch but not enough room to eliminate.
Crate training your puppy or dog is just a smart thing to do for you and your pet. It will give you sense of security and peace knowing that your pet is not getting in harms way while you are away.
