Dog crates are actually very useful, sometimes it can also be your life saving tool in cases of emergency. If you have recently have a new family member, whether be it an adult dog that is old and strong or a puppy that is cute and small, the process of adjustment can take quite a while as well as the learning of the rules of the current household. Consistency is something that is important here. Consistency is a prime factor here, be consistent always around your dogs with your choices of movement, gestures and words and also repeat all of the same things over and over again around them or in front of them so that in the end they would be familiar with what those gestures, movement and words mean. The key to winning the opinion of a new family member is your patience. Never lose your patience with your dog since this can take you a few steps back in getting them to be trained and to follow your commands. It is important to keep in your heads that if you stay calm then the your dog will also stay calm which in turn will actually create a good bond of confidence and trust between the two of you.
