A crated dog training collar is one of the most popular ways to train your new puppy and is an effective way to use crate training to your advantage. Here’s what you should know about this training collar and how you can use it to get the results you want.

Crate dog collars are similar in concept to the ones you use to train a dog, just with a crate. What you do is put the collar on your dog and he will spend time inside of a crate. If you have multiple dogs, then each dog will have their crate to use while they are not using yours. Once your dog has had enough time inside of the crate, he will be allowed to go outside.

The Basic Idea

Many people are intimidated by the idea of using a crate training collar. It is best to have one when you first start, but once you have a good relationship with your dog you will probably change back to let him out of his crate more frequently. You also won’t have to worry about your dog being too afraid of the collar.

The crate training collar does have some downsides though. One of the major drawbacks is that it isn’t very fun for the dog. Most dogs hate being cramped, so having your pet spend all day in his crate can make them feel very uncomfortable. Some dogs may even try to escape from his crate, and if they do, they can easily chew his way out of it.

Know The Space

If you aren’t able to keep your dog inside of the crate all day, then you may want to consider getting a bigger crate. Your dog will probably like his crate for a couple of weeks and will be comfortable with it. As your dog gets used to his new crate you may want to get him out for a little while, so he can get used to being outside of his crate. This will allow you to make sure that he knows that the crate is his area so that he will not want to escape into it when he feels like he has escaped.

Benefits Of It 

There are many benefits to using a crate training collar. Not only will you be able to control your dog’s activities more effectively, but it will make him a much better pet because he will learn to trust you and feel safe and secure in his new environment. He will be able to trust the sound of your voice and he will know that you will always be there when he needs help or wants to play with you.

You will also want to be sure that you are using your crate training collar correctly. You should not leave your dog in his crate all day or all night, but you should also not let him out to go outside for long periods either. Be sure that you do this gradually so that he gets used to being inside of the crate for short periods.


You should always check with your veterinarian before using your crate training collar. He or she can tell you exactly how you should use the crate and you can also learn more about the proper use of a crate collar. He or she will know which side of the collar is best for your dog. When you do have a good veterinarian on your side, you can feel more confident in your crate dog training collar and can feel secure in the fact that you are making the right decisions.
