Crate Training worked Great for my great dane when she was a puppy. But when she got older i dont think there is any crate Big enough for a dne. LOL! But i did not crate Train my Doxie or pug. I never had a problem with them. Plus my Dane watched over them like they were her puppies. SOOO Cute.

try this to quiet a dog that is starting crate training.

i've always recommended a harsh "Quiet!" -when they stop, say something like 'that's better' or a plain 'Good girl/boy' -but in a pleasant tone, not really exciting, or high pitched , just pleasant. if that doesnt seem to work (after you've tried it for a few days and you feel it has no effect whatsoever) you could use a spray bottle after you say 'quiet' if they continue to bark/whine. always praise when they do what you say. i wouldnt recommend the spray bottle for submissive or hand shy types..depending on the dog, the squirt may freak them out so much that they lose the idea of the lesson.

however way you teach your dog(each dog is different, so they learn differently) ALWAYS remember to never let your baby out of the cage while they are barking/whining -this will only give them a positive reaction to their behavior...even if you really were going to take them out anyway, if they start up. you must wait, leave the room, whatever, do what you got to do to make them be quiet before you let them out -you dont want to reinforce the barking -this will only make it harder for you to get them to stop.

*if its a case where the baby is new to the cage and that is why they are throwing a fit, ignore it altogether. because even if you scold him, and walk away, he will see this as attention so he'll keep doing it...and they will throw a tantrum, but its only because its new and they want to be playing, doing what they want to do. it is one of those things where they may resist it in front of you, but you will walk in on them sleeping in it on their own free will..
I just read up on this exact same thing on doggyhigh.com go to the Home then ask Seann Section

Question crate training help

I was told to crate train by my husban, I didn't want to do it.
It was the best thing i've ever, done.
My friend trained her dog that way. My dog is so well behaved and he can hold it all day with no accidents.
Now i'm training my new little puppy in the crate, she's a pug, but i feel like it's taking her a long long time. After work every
there is accidents ... never fails... she's 4 months old..

She's a 4 month old pug! That's why she's still having accidents. it will just take longer...just keep being persistant. She'll get it,good luck!

I bought my dog a specialized made dog crate which is big for three dogs to fit in with still enough room to walk around. It has also a specialize place for potty training.

I'm not sure i'd like the idea of still being able to soil in the cage, why would you want a special area in the cage to potty in, how is that training your dog to NOT soil where they sleep? I can only forsee those with really small dogs which may never be able to be housebroken to use this as a training device to soil in a certain area of the house.

Yeah, I agree. That takes away the benefit of using the crate as a house-training tool IMO.

Great information. One thing that I would add is to try to place the crate where the dog can look out a window. I put mine in front of a sliding glass door. I have a bird feeder in view. I feel this breaks up monotony.
