A listener asks some questions. Katie says she and her husband will be getting a dog this year but have some questions. The first was about using a crate and whether it really was a good training tool. Liz, Petra and Kate talk about how long a dog should be asked to stay in a crate and some options for longer time periods. Katie then asked about bringing home a puppy, an adolescent, or an adult and the hosts talk about pros and cons of each. Since Katie and her husband will be first time dog owners, that's discussed too. Although these questions were asked by one prospective dog owner, they have applications for many listeners so please tune in.
