crate training

I just started crate training my 7 week old pup and I just switched her food to bb wilderness grain free from purina pro plan( vet recommended) im curious as to what is realistic on how long until she learns to go outside instead of in her crate. im currently changing her feeding schedule so that someone is home and can take her out 30 minutes after she eats and drinks plus she bites on her kennel when I put her in and im worried if she will break her teeth any help is appreciated

At 7 wks old, she's going to need to go out every time she plays, sleeps, eats, or drinks, much like a human infant uses the bathroom every time after doing one of these activities. She may not last 30 minutes after the fact, but it's good that you're trying to get her on a better schedule so she can be attended to. As for her biting the kennel... she'll only bite so hard, so I'm sure she'll stop before she hurts herself. It's just a reaction to being confined. If you feel the need to, correct her for doing it, and redirect her attention to something you would want her to chew on, as continuing this behavior could result in a crate chewer and will eventually allow her to bust out when she's older, depending on the type of kennel/crate you're using.

As for how long it will take to get her housebroken, each dog is different in terms of learning. My female is 2 yrs old and still has to be walked as soon as she makes the first noise in her kennel, otherwise she'll muck it up and then she needs to be bathed and the kennel cleaned. There's no definite answer that can be given on how long it will take your pup to learn to go outside.

Thanks a lot ladypit I just decided to check for any responses and she woke up from her nap after I fed her this morning and she just went pee outside but no poop maybe since she poop this morning when I first took her out but she's back in the kennel until playtime/feeding time in a couple of hours and I will still get her out every 30 minutes or so

Crate Training Information

I hope This information is helpful about Crate Training

Pit bulls find crates irresistible and quickly learn to make them their very own exceptional dens. Never close a crate door on a dog that is not used to it. Never push a dog into the crate, instead let them walk in on their own or else you will make them feel trapped and confined. When starting out, encourage the dog to eat in the crate; give it a bone to toy around with when the door is still opened.

Spend considerable amount of time peacefully trying to correlate the crate with a good thing. This will not only make your dog relaxed and comfortable but it will eventually get used to staying in the cage while the door is closed. Most dog training have it that crates make the dog calm in addition to reducing barking and house breaking concerns.

My pup Mr. Momo is 16 weeks and still hates the crate. This is due to me doing exactly what your not supposed to out of ignorance when we got him 8 weeks ago. Is there any way to re-introduce my pup to the crate or is it too late?

When we rescued Rocky (@ about 2 years old) he was terrified of the crate but after about a month or so of working with him he started to like it, now he loves his crate and just chills in it (door open) while I get ready for work !

I guess it would work the same for your pup, heck it would probably be easier due to his age ! Just remember to be patience and make it a positive experience for you pup!
