“You better not be in my spot when I get back!” How many of us have said this before? Our favorite spot on the couch or our favorite chair in the living room is where we go to unwind. It’s where we feel most comfortable, and we might even take a nap there. If you are training your dog to use a crate, this is exactly how you want him to feel about his “new spot.” In the beginning stages of the training process, this mentality can be developed. The important thing is to build positive associations that go along with crate. Also, you will want to make sure that your dog is not rushed into feeling comfortable. But how do you do this? Well here at Pet Street Mall, we have all of the information to help you train your dog so he will love his crate as much as you love your favorite spot on the couch!
