As our first experience with puppies SEVEN of them, I am curious about the age which they can be started on puppy food and when they would be ready to part with their brood? Thank you.

This is and could be a very good training technique however some abuse it so harshly and think they are "training" their dog(s).

I know someone that has 2 pups in the crate all the time and gets excited when they allow the dogs out for a hour or 2. They are always in this crate even when everyone is home in the house. They are pretty well housebroken, with some accidents here and there. Someone is home pretty much all the time and I believe the dogs should not be in their crate unless it's over night, timeout, or when no one is home. I truely think it's abuse!

yes, a crate is great! when i first heard of "cage training", i thought it sounded so unkind. but when we got our new puppy we also purchased a book about puppies & crates, and from that i gained a new understanding. the book explained about the natural wolf-like instincts that allow a dog to feel safe in his own space, rather that 'trapped in a cage'. and our puppy proved it all to be correct! it's very important to teach your dog the right associations with his cage, using lot's of positives and praise, never using it as a punishment... a doggie loves his "cave"!

The Crate training works great. From the first day we got our Jack Russell shes been sleeping in there. Shes now 4 months and is trained to scratch at the back door when she needs to potty, it all started from basic consistant crate training .

I put my puppy in a crate from day one. He goes to bed every night at 9:00 and stays until we get up in the morning, around 7. He actually runs into his crate because he gets a tiny piece of chicken for going in. He also goes in while I am at work, but I come home for lunch for an hour and he comes out. Goes back in for a few more hours with no problem. Of course on the weekends he is out for the day. But come 9:00 he goes to bed. He is 10 months old now and that's his little room.

From the moment I got him at 12 weeks, my now 8 month old hates his crate. It feels wrong to put him in unless I absolutely have to. My new 14 week old puppy loves his crate. He even puts himself to bed every night! My first pup sleeps with me....that is how much of a fuss he made if he couldn't be on the bed. HA!

The one thing that puts my puppy into a panic is to be confined in a small space. Otherwise she is perfectly happy and calm. Is it right for EVERY dog is are the benefits more for the convenience of the owner? It just feels SO wrong.
