In fact, we should be using it after potty training AND when we are home.I usually get some resistance to this. Most dog owners have a sense of guilt using the crate even when they are home. You might think “well, it’s not fair to my puppy, he shouldn’t have to be in his crate when I’m home” or “I should be able to supervise him when I’m home.”The only thing we are doing is making things harder on ourselves.
