The use of a crate in dog training is highly debated amongst experts and dog…
Many dog owners have made one cardinal mistake in the past – they have believed that it would be easy to have their new pooch eating out of the palm of their hands immediately, figuratively speaking of course! Housebreaking a dog is nowhere near as easy though and there is no one way to carry out housebreaking a dog. Instead, you have to choose from the options that are presented to you.
Housebreaking a dog may be a process of trial and error, but crate training is a great place to begin. Crate training is incredibly effective for housebreaking a dog. This is because you can get our dog used to going outside at regular intervals and encourage him or her not to do it in the safe haven they have in the crate itself.
If you do not like the idea of crate training for housebreaking a dog then why not use one of the training programs available instead. You can use a routine to get your dog used to going to the toilet at certain times of the day. Alternatively, there are methods available that involve rewards for good behaviour. In many cases, owners take the best parts of all of the techniques and combine them. Ultimately, housebreaking a dog is all about what works for you so do your research and choose wisely!
