The Benefits of Crate Training Your Dog

I just ran into a dear friend today at PetsMart.  She had lost her beloved dog Rio. . .and was purchasing a crate for her new puppy.  Been thinking about doing this post . . .she just gave me the initiative.  Found this article so insightful – hope you will too.

The Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) issued a position statement Nov. 21, 2012 that recommends crates for training and transport of dogs.

“We want to assure shelters, rescues, vets and dog owners that using crates is safe, humane and effective and in many cases can be what helps a dog stay int its home,” said Mycelle Blake, the group’s president and CEO.

APDT noted that crates should be used for positive training of dogs, not for punishment, and dogs should be introduced to a crate gradually.


“It is important to choose a crate of appropriate size and adjust confinement times as the dog matures in order to build long-term success”, the position statement reads.  “Avoid crating a dog who is experiencing anxiety, whether that anxiety stems from the confinement itself, separation from a loved one, or from environmental factors like a thunder-storm or other dogs”.

The association also stated that crates:

  • May be used to promote house training and to manage behavioral issues such as destructive chewing and counter-surfing.
  • Provide safe restraint in a car and ease travel by providing short-term confinement options in a hotel or other destination.
  • Help minimize stress during emergencies, while boarding in a kennel and while staying overnight at a veterinary clinic.

“When introduced properly, a crate becomes a safe place that many dogs seek out when they need a break from a hectic home environment”.

The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, in a position statement on puppy socialization, recommends nap-taking in “safe places such as crate or puppy pens.”

In addtion, the group stated: “Puppies that are used to being crated will be less stressed if they must be hospitalized or be donfined for travel by plane or car.”

Good luck Kathy on crate training your new puppy!!
