A random question about crate training. If I’m going to a place and the pup needs to be in the crate, should I put the pup in the crate? I don’t know if it will make the puppy think that crate means the owner is leaving.

Great tips. Thank you!
Yes, the suggestions about crates, gates, and play pens were great. I shared this video with a friend who just got a puppy and was asking me about the crate and play pen we got our puppy. We go the MidWest crate with divider and play pen and love them. We took your advice in the past about using a sheet to cover it at night and to use a baby video monitor to watch our puppy from another room. We are now using the play pen to block off a room we do not want our 15 month old puppy in. Our puppy loves sleeping and resting in her crate and does not mind being in it when we are not home or even when we are home. 🙂
Please do some reviews on bowls, training treats, balls for fetch, and toys for those puppies that chew up toys quickly. Our puppy has KONG balls, a large red KONG wobbler, puppy KONG, and KONG bone, but has managed to scratch and chew pieces off on the KONG balls, wobbler, and bone. Note that we watch her when she has these toys so she does not digest any pieces she pulls off. Then we hide them in a cabinet so she cannot get to them without us.
Thanks much! You are all so great and helpful to all dog owners especially new ones like me. 🙂
Sizing? Should the dog be able to lay side flat in the crate to know if it’s the right size and turn around in?
My 9 month old puppy is 11lbs and got him the 24” plastic kennel.. is that too small?
@Monica Lee if the dog can comfortably lay down, stretch and turn around, you’re good.
whoever created crates for dogs…take a bow!
