Crate training

After listening to the crate training podcast, i was wondering how long the dog should sleep in the crate in the bedroom and if /when he should be transitioned to the larger crate outside the bedroom.

What I’ve Tried…

New puppy arriving in three weeks.

I’m no expert, but from what I’ve read, you keep him in the bedroom until he is used to the crate.  My puppy (10 weeks) only needed 2 nights in my bedroom till I moved his crate to his permanent sleeping location downstairs.  It’s been 7 nights and he loves his crate and wants to go there when he’s tired at night.
