Once your Havanese puppy is comfortable with his crate restrain him at the door by using the door while praising him. Your Havanese puppy will soon feel secure in his home with the door closed. Walk further and further away from him while praising. Your Havanese puppy will eventually accept being in his crate with the door closed.
Start when your Havanese puppy is very young and have them sleep in their new crate. The Havanese breed will train themselves to seek comfort and security inside their crate, which will act as their den.
Don't force your Havanese puppy into his crate but encourage them to enter the crate. It is normal for your Havanese puppy to be shy and back out of his crate. Don't immediately close the door, but rather let him go in and out of the crate on his own. This will help your Havanese puppy get comfortable with his crate.
We utilize crate training with our Havanese puppies for . We recommend purchasing a pet home, divider panel and floor grid. When your havanese puppy is young you will want to use the divider panel to reduce the amount of area that he or she has to roam inside the crate. If your puppy has too much room inside the crate he will want to go potty at one end of the crate and then rest at the other end. Since your Havanese puppy doesn't want to potty where he sleeps the divider panel will reduce the area of the crate until they are old enough
