Crate Games

At some point in almost every dog’s life they will need to be crated. Whether it’s at the veterinarian’s office or the grooming shop, in a car or on an airplane, at a hotel or at Great Aunt Ginny’s house, you may be required to keep your dog in a crate. Crate training is also useful for house-training, preventing destructive behavior, helping anxious dogs, safely confining your dog when you have guests, preventing door-dashing, keeping your dog busy while you’re busy, the list goes on!

Our three-week Crate Games class will help you to make the crate your dog’s happy place – their favorite place to be. They’ll chose it when they’re tired, when they need a break, when they want to chew their favorite chew thing, or whenever you happily ask them to go to it. The conveniences of a crate-trained dog will astound you! Classes fill quickly, so enroll in this necessary and unique class today.

Urban Pooch Training and Fitness Center can provide practice crates, or you may provide your own. Soft-sided (zip-up) crates are not recommended. Please bring a variety of plentiful treats.

Policy on Missing Classes During Group Training Classes:

While we understand that things do happen, the price for group classes takes into account the trainer working with everyone during the group class. If you need to miss a class, you can schedule a 30 minute make-up class at Urban Pooch for a cost of $30/make-up session. This entire fee goes directly to the trainer for their time. Thanks for understanding!
