It is important that your pet associates the cage with comfort and safety. Do not rush the training process and ensure that pet is happy before closing door or leaving alone for any period of time. Ensure that pet has already “relieved” itself before using cage. Put comfortable bedding on crate floor and do not leave space for toilet activities. Put treats inside cage, you need to encourage dog to spend time inside. Initially do not lock cage door until pet is happy to use cage. Do not force pet inside cage, or use cage as punishment. Once pet is happy using cage then can start to close door for short periods. Extend periods with door closed so that pet is used to cage door being closed while you are in the house. This way there will not be an association with you leaving when the door is closed. When pet is comfortable for extended periods with door closed you can leave pet for short periods, then gradually increase time spent away. If leaving for more than 1 hour leave water for the pet. When leaving or returning do not make a big fuss. Keep the fact that you come and go as low key as possible. Do not keep pet caged all day and then again all night. They need to have plenty of exercise and emotional activity. You need to create a welcoming environment for your pet in the cage and with good training the pet should want to spend time inside. If you have any problems or anxieties, please seek advice from your local vet.
