Crate training is wonderful to introduce to new puppies. It can make house training easier, and if you do it gently and with lots of positive reinforcement it will give your puppy a safe and comfortable place to be when he is stressed or anxious
Crate training done right should not involve using the crate as a punishment. It should only be used as a safe place for the dog to be when he can't roam free. We have used it for both of our dogs starting as puppies, and have had great success.
