Rules of the Crate

* Ideally, the crate should always be out and available, with the door open.

* NEVER use for punishment, or “time out.” No exceptions!

* Do not lock the dog in the crate when exciting/scary things are going on, such as vacuuming, or when a guest arrives.

* Ask the dog politely to go in the crate before you go out. When initially crate training, you can toss a treat in the crate to make the experience positive.

* Always shut the door slowly and visibly, and do not rush or trick the dog.

* Do not bother the dog when in the crate. The crate is their space.

* Never forcibly put the dog in the crate, never forcibly remove the dog from crate.
