Crate Training

Course Overview

Crates have, unfortunately, a bad reputation for a lot of people. But crates aren’t cages, at least when used correctly. If your dog is properly crate trained, you’ll have peace of mind when leaving them on their own, and they’ll have a safe, warm, and comfortable den to retreat to when they need it. But even if you don’t plan on having a crate for your dog at home, it’s really important that your dog is crate trained in case they need to travel or spend the night at the vet.

In this course, certified trainer and behavior consultant Alex Sessa will walk you through how to choose the right crate, set up the crate environment, and how to cue your dog to enter their crate.

Why crates are great, how to choose the right one, and how to acclimate your dog to it

Well, as you can see, crate training is relatively simple! With only one workshop, you can have your dog crate trained in just a few short weeks. We’ll break down how to choose the right crate for your dog based on their age, breed, size (and eventual size!) and where to place crates within your home to give you and your dog optimal freedom and comfort.
