CRATE SOURCESThe most effective and humane way to toilet train your puppy is crate training. When properly introduced puppies LOVE their crates and it becomes their own special place which they seek out when they need to rest up - being a puppy is kinda tiring!We do not sell crates at our training school. Pop in to your vet or local pet supply store to see what they have in stock. You can also visit West Pack (Lifestyle), Builder’s Warehouse or try Pet Creations online.Tips:•The crate should be just large enough for your pup to sleep - giant breeds benefit from a crate that can be partitioned. This way you can still use the crate when your pup is adult size.•Drape a blanket over wire crates to mimic the “den” feel of the non-wire crates.•Fabric crates are not suitable for chewers.•Follow the training advice as per your McKaynine Owner’s Guide - please do not use the crate without completing the training.
