We are brining home our pembroke, Riley, on Sunday. Everything I've read about crate training has said not to just put the dog in there but to use treats to train him to use the crate making sure to take it slowly. If that's the case, how do I bring him home? It's a 2 1/2 hour ride home from the breeder. Also, where would he sleep the first nights if I can't just put him in the crate? I want to make sure we do train him correctly, so I'm a little confused.
Thanks for all of your help!
