All about dog crates

Please note that puppies cannot be left in crates for 8 hours a day-- you can crate the pup during the day one hour for each month of the pup's age. A 4 month old pup can probably be OK for 4 hours at a stretch, assuming you've adequately pottied him beforehand. A 6 month old pup can be crated for 6 hours. Never crate any dog for more than 8 hours at a stretch-- your dog will need to relieve himself and drink water by then.

Be sure you plan ways to adequately meet your dog's needs for exercise each day. Dogs that are crated frequently will need more than a casual walk around the block to stay in shape physically-- they'll need a good aerobic workout every day.
