Give Your Dog a Den

In the wild, dogs dig dens to rear their young. Our house dogs share these wild instincts and will commonly feel comfortable in protected spaces they can call their own.

Most dogs like getting into protected and enclosed spaces like under tables, or other furniture. Crate training your dog will acclimate your dog to the crate, and he’ll soon love the secure and protected space that you provided┬áhim.

If you have a wire create, adding a cover, like a towel or a blanket to the top of the crate will create a more den like space. Timid dogs should certainly have a ‘den’ to call their own where they can relax in safety.
