If you are confused whether or not to use crate during Rottweiler training, you probably have heard or come across contrasting theories about the crate. Some believe that the use of it is inhumane while others are enjoying the benefits of using such equipment.

Dogs in the wild thrive in dens, an area they considered as their refuge to keep them safe from harsh weather conditions, vicious animals and others. If they can avoid it, they would never soil their dens. Now that they have become domesticated, it doesn’t mean that they no longer need their dens. They still need their own home inside your home thus they must be provided with dog beds or crates. Crates should provide them with comfort when the climate is hot and keep them warm when it’s freezing cold outside.

And because they are not the ones to soil their homes if they can avoid it, using crate can help you teach your pet how to control the urge to eliminate and eventually develop regular potty schedule. How do you go about doing this? All you have to do is take your pet out every morning (after waking up), after eating, drinking and exercise, when nervous or excited and before going to bed at night. By taking him out at the same time everyday, it won’t be impossible for you to have that potty trained Rottie you always wanted.
