His House ... His Refuge

Once your puppy arrives, it is important to set up an enclosure or a place where he can stay when you are away. You will install everything you need to live there ... toys, water bowl, food, blanket, cage and pique. At first, leave the cage door open and invite him in with treats. As your puppy grows up, they will learn that the crate is nice. it is important to teach him that his cage is his refuge, the place where he sleeps, dozes off and remains when he is alone. The cage is the best bed for him.

Be sure to place the crate in an area where there is no draft so the puppy is warm. You can also give the puppy a blanket to sleep on. Try to cover the cage with a towel to muffle the noise.

The most important thing to do to make sure your puppy understands the household routine is not to respond to his crying while he is in his crate which will cause an escalating tantrum or tantrum. just no more crying and moaning. Don't talk to him, ignore the behavior. If you scream or shake him, you will only convince the puppy that he has good reason to be afraid and to cry.
Remember that after three hours he may need relief. If so, open the door without speaking to him, take him to the place that has been determined in advance by the family to defecate, and let him do it. Do not allow him to turn this moment into a period of games. Immediately return him to his cage and leave. He must learn as soon as possible that when it is dark and it is quiet in the house, it is time to sleep.
