How should I go about crate training a 10 week old puppy.

The general rule of thumb for crate training is to make sure that you are available to let your puppy out for 2 hrs plus their age (2 months + 2hrs = 4hrs) for bathroom breaks. Also never use the crate as punishment it will deter use of it for him.

Get a crate big enough for him to lay down and turn around in. Put him in it for a few minutes each day, extending the time each day. Give him a treat as you put him in and say something like, "go to your room. " He will learn to anticipate that if he goes in, he gets the treat.
