They need enough space to be able to stand up, turn around and lie down in the crate. We recommend measuring the length from their nose to the base of their tail, then add between 2 and 4 inches.

Your dog's ability to stay in their crate will depend on a few factors, including their age and size. Regardless of these factors, all dogs should be regularly let out of their crates for walks and potty breaks. Your dog should not be left alone in a crate for more than four or five hours at a time during the day and can sleep in their crate overnight if they are comfortable doing so.

You can. When crate training your dog, treat the crate as their bedroom and use positive reinforcement. Your dog will find that the kennel is their safe haven where they can retreat when they become tired or nervous.

Here are a couple of tips! First, introduce them to the crate by dropping treats inside and encouraging them to enter. Next, feed them meals next to the crate to create a pleasant association. After your pup is able to remain in the crate for about 30 minutes without becoming anxious, you can attempt leaving them in the crate when you leave for a few hours or at night. Gradually practice longer crating times. Leave them with a few safe toys to occupy their time and curb boredom and anxiety. Review this helpful guide from Petco for more information on crate training your dog.

Objects placed in your dog’s crate should be chew proof and waterproof or easily washable. Chew toys and puzzle toys are a great choice to keep your dog occupied and distracted from destroying their bedding. Generally you won’t want to leave water in a crate, especially when house training, as your pup can fill their bladder quickly.
