1. The Importance of Crate Training
There are many reasons to get your dog used to being crated, and they all revolve around health and safety.
First off, dogs can become carriers of the plague and other illnesses when exposed to an endemic area, so it is safer for you if your pet sleeps in a crate instead of in your bed.
Additionally, a crate is a safe space for your dog to relax if they are sick, injured or stressed. Getting your dog used to a crate now could prove to be very beneficial after the SHTF.
