Overview

Ease Your Mind And Indulge Your Dog!
If you want your dog to feel safe and secure in your home, it's time to crate train! A crate is designed as much for a dog's well-being as it is for the owner's convenience and peace of mind. For example, a crate keeps a curious puppy away from chemicals under the kitchen sink, gives a sick or convalescing dog a quiet place to rest, and secures a rambunctious dog during car trips.
Crate training works because dogs, like their wild ancestors, desire a snug "den" that affords security and privacy. When dogs are crate trained properly, they accept and even enjoy their sequestered time.
Pat Storer shows you how to maintain a positive, loving attitude while being firm and consistent with your dog. With Storer's advice on choosing the right crate, step-by-step instructions, and tips for dealing with crate-related behavior problems, both you and your dog will find crate training to be a simple, successful experience.
