From Training Crate to Doggy Den
Experts agree the fastest and most reliable puppy potty training method is to use a dog crate. A dog crate also provides your pet with its own space within your home, helping it to feel settled. Your puppy will naturally go to it’s crate if they want to sleep or just relax. Both the Fido Nook 24 and 36 sizes are compatible with most manufacturers equivalent crates, so if you already have a crate the chances are it will fit. All dimensions are at the bottom of the page for you to easily check.
Once a puppy is house trained many people prefer not to continue using a crate because the style may not suit their home. They remove the puppy's crate and put a dog bed directly on the floor. The new dog bed can be draughty and noisy which not only leaves the puppy feeling exposed but it can also make them nervous.
The Fido Nook not only provides a safe haven in which your dog can relax and feel safe, it can also have a positive effect on your dog’s behaviour. You'll find your dog is more confident and calm as they enjoy the warmth and security that having a special place to call their own brings. With the crate removed the Fido Nook is completely mesh free and stands alone as a stunning piece of wooden furniture that will complement any living room.
