I just set up this crate for my new puppy, Bean. He's in it for the first time. He has been in a wire crate a few times before but this is the first time I am training him to go in on his own. I like using a nice large crate so that he can move around inside while I am gone. I would leave him babygated in the kitchen, but he climbs over the gate.
I am using clicker training to teach him to run into his crate, and then gradually closing the door. I'm simultaneously training my adult dog to lie down while I train the puppy Bean. This is an important skill in a multiple dog household.
