Question by Liz: What do you think about “crate training” a dog?
I really have been wanting a dog lately. one of the dogs I found on spca said it was housebroken. Then a little further down the description it said it was crate trained. So she doesn’t pee in the house since she is locked up all day? I think its mean to lock a puppy up all day. What do y’all think.

We crate our dogs as pups for a few reasons – even confined to one room, pups can get into things, or eat things that they shouldn’t, and it was the easiest way to train them.

As they get older, and are able to hold their bladders all day, we stopped crating them.
