Even though many people believe that keeping your dog in a crate is like “imprisoning” your dog, but it is actually not! It is very beneficial because dogs are naturally den animals and enjoy being in small, enclosed places.
Keeping your dog in a crate also teaches them responsibility and calms their anxiety, it also gives your dog “their space” where they can hide and “recharge”.
