Training Your Puppy
Choose the right size crate for your puppy. Your puppy should have enough room to stand up, turn around, and lie down. Anything bigger and he may eliminate in one end and sleep in the other. If you have a puppy that will grow into a big dog, you will either need two crates of different sizes or a crate with a divider that you can move as your puppy grows.
If your puppy is past the chewing stage, make the crate comfortable with a blanket and favorite toys. You want the crate to be a place your dog wants to spend time, but you won’t want him to spend his time ripping up bedding
