People often ask what is the best way to train and what is the best equipment to use while doing so. We tend to lean towards crate training pups because of the variety of benefits it offers both the owner and dog. The AKC (American Kennel Club) has a great article explaining the benefits of crate training. When it comes to playing and walking, you can use your own judgement, own toys and collars and leashes. We normally walk our pups with traditional leashes and collars but harnesses work very well too.
