When people talk about a dog crate, I suddenly think about a holiday with my dog.
He needs to be in his crate while being in the car, he is very cooperative that ways. He is an outgoing personality (actually, most dogs are!) who likes to hang out with me at new places.
Well, my dog likes getting in his crate-fort even when we are at home, but you would want to know why most of the dogs don’t like it?
Maybe you can crate train how I trained my little man settling in his crate.

You can use a dog crate for two purposes, one for traveling, another for leaving your dog alone at home. In most of the cases, while traveling, a master will stay alongside his pet. In contrast to that, the latter situation leaves the dog on his own to cope with the lonely period.
Honestly, a crate is an effective solution only for short periods. If you need to leave your dog alone in the house, make sure you reach back within a couple of hours. Consider the fact, dogs do not do well without their loved ones.
They think you will not return forever, gradually they will learn you always return no matter what. Yet their separation anxiety never settles when they are hoping your return all the time.
Thus, once you crate train your champ you are free to go out for work leaving the dog alone without even feeling dejected. However, this problem has many possible solutions when you practice the needful activities with utmost care. In most cases, metal crates pretty much help in crate training your little champs.
Using a crate is not at all cruel as we have described above but ignoring and punishing a dog using a crate is not a good practice.
Being inside a crate is a part of training every dog can learn if trained with utmost patience and consistency. All you need to do is, make the crate time appear like a happy place for the Fido.
