Crate training a puppy, an alternative to paper training, encourages a dog to only eliminate outside and never in the house. Use only positive reinforcement when crate training a puppy with information from a professional certified dog trainer in this free video on dog care.
Hello, my name is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg in Miami, Florida, with Miami Dog Training. In this clip, we're going to talk about how to crate train a puppy which is a little, you know, which is very different than than paper training, and basically, because paper training teaches your dog that it is okay to go to the bathroom in the house as long as it's on a designated area that you've trained him to go. More or less housebreaking, where we're teaching the dog to hold it when he's in the house and to only go to the bathroom outside. So, what you want to make sure that you do is when your dog does go outside and go to the bathroom you want to praise him ex immediately. And you know, if he does go inside you want to show him his mistake; tell him no, but again, point point your disapproval, point your disappointment towards the mess he made not towards the puppy. Don't stick his nose in it. Don't, you know, no need to get sadistic. Just show him the mess he made. Tell him no, no, no, that you don't like it. Let him know you don't like it, but make sure your disapproval is point is directed at the mess he made. One thing I like to do when I do put them in the crate I like to tell em' go in your house, go in your house, right, good house, and I praise him for goin' in his house. I like to call it his house cause' it's like his room. Once again, this is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg, with Miami Dog Training.
