Crate Training 101 Video

From puppyhood and through senior years, all dogs have an instinctive need to ‘nest’. This means that they naturally have the need to seek sheltered places and have a private area to call his own – a home within your home that he can call his own. A crate not only provides a comfortable and safe environment, it gives your dog a sense of security and offers a stress-free space. And nothing fits the bill like a crate from MidWest, the largest home builder for pets headquartered in the United States.

We manufacture crates for dogs of all breeds, shapes, and sizes. Dogs love them, and dog parents love them even more! That being said, your pup has to be trained to recognize the crate you choose for him as his home. Training your pup isn’t necessarily difficult. But not all pups take to it on the same timeline. Don’t worry – consistency is key! We’ve got all sorts of educational material to help you succeed in crate training.
