Crate

This may be a silly question hoever im am unsure of what to do….
is it okay to move the crate around whilist crate training for example having it in the bedroom during the night and then moving it to the family/lounge room during day? or would this being confusing to my puppy?

If possible I think it is better to have more then one crate so you don't have to move them around… but that said, if you are moving it, your pup will get used to that happening, I would believe. They might be a bit confused in the beginning.. but they are pretty quick to figure things out

I moved mine back and forth from bedroom (at night) to dining room (day) for a while with no problem. Now it's in the dining room only as I gave in to him sleeping on the bed. Ah, nothing like being crowded to the edge of the bed by a B.

I have the same story as nobarkus - we moved our first puppy's crate around a few times. Even from a full backyard view to a shared front bay window view (had to make room for B #2), she's always been pretty good. I think as long as the pup understands crate = happy place, you'll be fine with wherever. I used & still use treats. And to my much appreciated surprise, my little crate hater boy has become the model crated B of the 2 - he was soooooo vocal during his first month, but now he just lounges - and now my female is the whiner. :p
