Episode # 126 - FAQ: Basics of Puppy Training - Utah Dog Training
I thought I would write a quick post from work, focused on a question that I receive a lot.
This question came from someone who bought my video on how to raise the perfect puppy, and who had questions abut
Her first question: “What type of crate do you recommend—wire crate or plastic mold?”
I personally like the plastic mold, but some of this decision depends on budget and the size of the dog. If your budget is tight and you can only afford one crate, I would get one of the big wire ones and partition it off. If the budget permits, however, I do prefer the plastic mold. I think dogs feel more comfortable in something that is enclosed and sturdy, more like a den. Plus, plenty of dogs can break the wire mesh crates. When I raise a puppy, they’re in a small plastic crate for a while and then as they get older they move to a larger plastic crate.
Her next question: “What are your collar recommendations?”
I prefer a slip lead for a puppy. This is a small slip collar that allows a bit of a correction. I usually start using the e-collar around five months—not as a correction, but as a communication tool.
Next question: “Can I start housebreaking as soon as my puppy comes home? Do I need to wait until twelve weeks to start adding other concepts? ”
