Default Crate trainning

Hello i've finnally was able to buy a good enough crate for my pup and he went right in exploring it when I set it up, I started putting him water and food bowl near the crate and everytime he did the comands I asked i'd put the treat inside the crate, after 1 day he now eats his food inside the crate but as soon as he finishes he comes out and lays on his bed which is right beside the crate, my question is, should I take out the bed? I don't know if it encourages not to lay in the crate, I know it's most likely too early for that just wanted to be sure the bed near the crate isn't gonna delay the crate trainning since my holidays are gone and he may feel lonely during the day

The crate needs to be the bed. Make it nice and comfortable and your dog will soon enjoy being in there. Never put him in there as punishment, but you also have to be strict with him when you want him in there

I very rarely had to punish him, when I do it's just a time out in any room for 1-2 minutes he gets the message, thanks for the answear I suppose I should take the bed away, the crate is well comfortable :P, my goal with the crate is just to make him feel safe when i'm away.

I put a towel and small fleece blanket in the crate. The blankets are inexpensive - about $3.00 here. (Do you have anything like WalMart in Portugal?) HA! Anyway, the small blankets are thin, soft and easy to wash. My pup seems quite comfy in his. I leave him a nylabone. I do not put any soft toys, or anything he might chew up and eat. I just offer my pup a treat to go in and shut the door behind him. Keep it simple.

I never feed my dog in the crate, but she ALWAYS gets a little treat when I put her in for naps and for night time so she thinks of that place as something good. She will go in her crate on her own to sleep sometimes. I also have a molded plastic kiddie pool with her toys and towels which she likes to go in also-she chewed up 2 nice beds...lol

I know the type of blankets Natty Boh is talking about but Cassie destroyed one of those awhile back. I cover her crate with an old table cloth which now has some chewed corners and a hole in the middle ...

Johny, Walmart is a chain of retail department stores. The blankets I am talking about are the type people like to wrap up in to watch TV. The ones I got Boh are thinner and smaller. I fold them into quarters and they fit perfectly in his crate.

Natty,I think I know what you mean now, and jesus christ, the pup barked horrendously tonight, he hasnt barked for 2 weeks at night, I suppose it's because I took his bed away? I'm putting it inside the crate it fits perfectly, might work

I have a bed inside my dogs crate he chewed the first 2 but I paid a bit more for a really strong anti chew one and I just lie a comfy blanket in there. I'd sleep in there to be fair and Brynn always happy to be in there

Problem solved he willingly goes in his crate now, doesn't bark at night, I had to put it in my bedroom, but that's fine I don't lock the door so he goes out to pee in the newspapers on the kitchen ( or at least around them ), gonna have to move the crate during day to the kitchen since i'm not at home hope it won't be a problem.

On other topic any of you had a beagle that walks literally on two legs when on leash? that's mine, I tried inside the house today, he will finnaly be able to walk outside next week maybe he will be more shy outside and let me guide him this pup is hyper!
