Each puppy should learn to relax in his cage.
This skill will be necessary in the veterinary clinic while traveling, as well as to limit activity in case of diseases.
The cage will help save your repair from destructive chewing, as well as keep the lives of young hooligans who love to chew the most inappropriate and even dangerous items. In some breeds, eating and gnawing can begin at 2-3 months of age and end only by 2-3 years.
For the period of your sleep is best to close the puppy in a cage.
People often make mistakes when they react to how a puppy makes a noise in a cage. With this, you only reinforce the puppy’s instinctive behavior, which tells him to be alone, means death, and that a call for help to someone will come to him. The location of the cage in your bedroom will help the puppy understand that he is not alone because he can hear, smell, and maybe even see you.
Feed, water, and walk with the puppy in such a way that at night, the puppy does not have to wake up to urgently meet its needs. If the puppy needs to go to the toilet, turn on the dim light and try to do it quickly, without any games. If you completely ignore a puppy when it is noisy in a cage, this problem usually passes very quickly. It’s best to teach your puppy the right way from the start, which will take much less time than correcting the wrong skills.
The worst thing you can do is allow your puppy to whine for a long time and then approach him. It will teach the puppy only that he needs to make noise continuously to get your attention, and for that, he needs to make noise as loud as possible! It leads to enormous emotional stress in the puppy.
You need to explain to the puppy that nothing bad happens to him when he is locked in a cage. If your puppy can not sleep all night without a trip to the toilet, plan his schedule so that he does not have to wake you up.
Do not fool a puppy in relation to his cage.
Give a treat when it goes inside, but do not suffer remorse when you close the door. Do not put the puppy in a cage when he is fast asleep because he will wake up with the feeling that he was caught, which may lead to a loss of trust in both you and the cage.
Be careful not to overuse the cell.
When you are at home during the day, you control the puppy in person, instead of using the cage. Puppies need exercise, mental stimulation, and your guidance to become healthy and happy. If a puppy is closed in a cage for a long time, it is not humane. Puppies sleep 14 hours a day or so. Ideally, the time a puppy is confined in a cage coincides with his sleep.
Make your cage a beautiful place to stay. A few safe chewing toys and treats will help your puppy to relax and doze off.
