Go To Your CrateTue, July 24, 2012
A crate provides a den for your dog and make him feel safe. Add a blanket or a cover to the crate to make it more cozy and comfortable. Use treats and praise to encourage him to enter the crate and make it an enjoyable experience. This is a good behaviour to learn for both for your dog's bed time routine and for travelling together.
Toss a treat inside your dog's crate.
Tell him to "go to your crate" and reward with another treat and praise.
Practice and make this a routine.
