Question: We’re planning on getting a new puppy. How should we set up a crate for her?

Answer: Your puppy’s crate, pen, or tethering spot should be a pleasant space that includes a chew toy, a comfortable bed, and a source of water. Remember, puppies need a lot of rest. If your little friend gets enough exercise, training, and affection, and has had a recent toilet break, he’s likely to spend most of his crate or playpen time sound asleep.
