With the help of a crate:
Can enjoy complete peace of mind hen leaving your dog at home alone, knowing that nothing will be destroyed and he is comfortable and protected.
Can house train your dog more quickly by using the close confinement to encourage control.
Can effectively confine your dog at times when he may be underfoot (meals, guests, workmen, etc.) over-excited or bothered by too much confusion or too many children, or maybe ill.
Can travel your dog without risk of the driver being dangerously distracted, and with the assurance that he can easily adapt to any strange surroundings a long as he has his familiar “security blanket” along.
Can enjoy the privacy and the security of a “den” of his own, to which he can retreat when tired, stressed or ill.
Can avoid much of the fear/confusion/punishment caused by your reaction to problem behaviour.
Can more easily become “clean”.
Can be spared the loneliness and frustration of being isolated (in basement, garage or outside) from comfortable indoor surroundings when being restricted
Can be conveniently included in family outings, visits and trips instead of being left alone at home or in boarding kennels.
