The Treat Fairy

The video above shows the process called The Treat Fairy. Leave the crate door open, and randomly throughout the day (when your dog isn’t watching) toss in a few small treats and let your dog find them on their own time. It’s a sneaky way of convincing your dog that “this box thing makes food!!” and gets the ball rolling on creating a fantastic association with it, quite passively.
