When I first joined this forum, almost everyone said to crate train. Even though it wasnt needed since he was potty trained in 3 days.
One of the best decisions I made. Stopped him from eating rocks, tearing up my plants and backyard while I wasnt home. It also allowed me to keep him confined inside until he was old enough to be trusted out at night on his own. At the vet hes less stressed than the other dogs that are not used to being crated. I can crate him when I need to wash my floors and let them dry. Theres just soo many reasons why crate training is good besides helping with potty training. Im so glad I did it. Nylabones the large size are great to chew on when no ones around because they dont come apart. also Kongs. I tried bully sticks but my dogs a chewer and he ate the big ones in 20 to 30 minutes.
