I have found crate training extremely effective for both my own dogs and from feedback from colleagues, clients and behaviourists.
Some clients worry that it looks bad keeping your dog in crate- but I tell them to look at it from a different perspective- the crate becomes a SAFE PLACE for the dog. Even though my dogs are now older, they were crate trained as puppies, they now seek out their crate to sleep and relax!!
The key to effective crate training is patience and consistency and starting from a puppy (if possible!).
