Hi! This is Elise McMahon for Expert and in this video series we are talking about puppy care. If you would like to find out more about my services, you can visit my website at So in the last video clip we were talking about puppy crates and why we crate puppies. We showed you an example of a small puppy crate and we are now moving up as the puppy grows the crate size needs to increase, so we have got here a larger crate size, you can see it right here. This crate is a front door opening crate. You can get crates that open in the front and some crates have a door that opens on the side. So depending on where you are going to put the gate, you might want to consider what kind of crate you need. Another thing to think about when you are thinking about crates is you want to have the crate in an area of high traffic. You want the dog to be with you, so if you are going to have a puppy in a crate, you do not want them in a basement somewhere or in a small confined place, this crate is situated right in the middle of the first floor of the house and like the last crate, this crate has a metal bedding on it and then it has a nice soft bed on top of the metal bedding. You will see that I have got a sheep skin blanket on top and I am using the top of the crate to store some stuff and inside the crate we have a squeaky toy for the puppy and in my hand, I have got a treat ball and inside the treat ball little cookies for the puppy, so we are going to show you how to get the puppy to go in the crate, Hey baby Raven; puppy is unfortunately sleeping, okay… You want a cookie. Come on, let’s go. Okay toss the cookies in the crate and we have tossed the treat ball in their for the crate, make sure tails are in, and you can close the door. You can see that she fits just fine in there. There is room for her to stand up; there is room in there for her to lie down. She can sit down, she can move around, she is not confined; she would be quite comfortable in there, if I had to leave her for a couple of hours. She is probably going to stay in there and see if she can get the treats out of the treat ball.
