Puppy & Breed Selection

Managing Your Puppy When Left Alone

 As I always mention in almost every article that a dog crate is a very useful tool if you have a puppy or dog in your home. Here I would discuss the importance of a dog crate for those pet owners who have to leave their puppy or dog alone at home for few hours. For doing that you must introduce the puppy to the crate from very first day. Do not use force, yelling, shouting on the puppy for sending him/her inside the crate rather you can encourage him/her with its favorite high value treat. In the beginning toss the treat inside the crate (the puppy should able to see that), the moment the puppy goes inside mark the behavior with a clicker or voice marker like ”YES” and reward the puppy with another treat for going inside. Do it as long as it takes  for the puppy to understand the exercise, when you feel the puppy has started to love this exercise add a command like “PLACE” and then toss the treat inside , the moment he enters mark the behavior(“YES”) and reward the puppy. When its done stop tossing the treat before he goes inside, just ask the pup “PLACE” (if the pup has understood the whole exercise) and you will see the pup will go inside, when he does that, “Mark” the moment instantly and reward him…When you are confident enough that he goes inside with the command, you can add the duration thereafter but certainly not too fast. Do not rush in any exercise which would ruin the entire effort.



When the pup is trained to be inside the crate, make the pup stay inside while you are doing your household chores, let the television or radio on. Now if a puppy starts to whine or bark do not ever let the pup out rather you can use a piece of cloth to cover the crate so the puppy cannot see what is going on out side the crate, after a few minutes when the pup is tired of shouting or barking it will stay calm. You can let the puppy out at that time as a reward for keeping calm inside the crate. As I discussed earlier that a dog lives in the present, they think in the present, if you let it out the time when it is whining or barking in the crate what the pup will learn is to bark and whine even more next time to get out of it and if you ignore the barking / whining and do not let him/her out until it has calmed down, he will only learn that its better to stay calm inside the crate if he/her has to get out of it. Although dogs are (like wolves again) den animals, they still have the den instinct inside, this is the reason if you have noticed dogs choose to sleep under the bed or sofa or under some other furniture in your home. If the crate is introduced in a fair manner they are going to love it and they will go inside whenever they need some space from other pack members.

 


 

Now what should you do when you have to go out let your puppy stay at home???


If you have noticed I have discussed here about covering the cage with a piece of cloth when the pup is barking or whining inside. If you have to go out side almost everyday for few hours then you need to work a little bit on teaching the pup to stay in side the crate while it’s covered. But you must elongate the time gradually after a number of training sessions, as you cannot expect a pup to stay inside for as long as half an hour or even 15 minutes unless it is trained. You have to increase the time starting with few seconds, then minutes, and then an hour, it will take some time but do not rush in this period.

Now when the puppy is trained to stay inside calmly for half an hour while you are doing your stuffs do not interact with the puppy, it’s better if you let your TV or Radio on.  Now when everything is done and you want to go out side, do not talk to the puppy to say bye or something. Just let the TV or radio go on while you are stepping out and do the same when you come back home. You must not talk with the puppy or should not let it out right after you come back. Let him stay inside while you freshen up and after 10 to 15 minutes uncover the crate, talk to the pup with a nice gentle voice, give him some high value treats for being inside calmly and let him out for little play time. While you cover the crate make sure little air should pass in and out. You also can give him a nice toy filled with treats or some sort of bones (not cooked) inside the crate before you cover the crate to make him busy with that stuff. If any one of you face any problems during this process write to me below or visit the section ”Ask A Question”  on our website and I will try to answer as soon as possible.
