Click/reward the canine for looking at, or moving in the direction of, the crate.
Click for one paw, after that two paws, after that 3, then all four paws in the crate. It might take awhile to make it through this step, however be patient and benefit usually. Try to compensate every 5-10 seconds or two. If way too much time passes prior to you can reward your pet dog, then lower your requirements (e.g., rather than three paws, benefit just two paws in the crate).
Job on period. You can either click as soon as for your pet dog entering the cage and also again if they stay in the pet crate OR just postpone the very first click for longer time periods. When you include duration such as this, you can add your launch sign (” fine”, “all done”, and so on). State your release sign as well as reward your pet dog for leaving the pet crate.
When your canine is efficient going in the cage and staying, you can add the “down”.

Currently this habits chain (entering the pet crate and down) needs to be looking rather strong. You can include your hint for cage at this moment (” crate”, “kennel”, “enter your residence”, “go to bed”, and so on). Say your hint right prior to your canine would supply entering the crate by themselves anyhow.

An excellent method to practice is to ask for various other actions they recognize (like “sit”, “down”, and “drink hands”) and afterwards arbitrarily ask to enter the crate. This step strengthens what your command implies.
Currently the foundation is there, and also you can put the finishing touches on this habits. Method raising the duration, shutting the crate door, you leaving the space while your pet is in the cage, the range your dog needs to go to the pet crate, and more.
