Crate Training

We know that, in Australia & New Zealand, more and more dogs are now living indoors with their human family and so they do have shelter from the extremes of heat or cold, or from wet weather. Having your dog living indoors also means that they are part of your family unit and addresses their fundamental need to be part of a pack.
