Puppy training... and Crates (or cages)
The puppy can grow to look on them as a place of refuge... away from the hustle and bustle, and from other pets.
They will avoid getting bullied by other pets, being fallen over or walked on whilst you are busy, and it would stop him or her from destructiveness and chewing whilst you are unable to keep an eye on them.
Do make certain that the bars are close enough together so that your puppy cannot get his or her head, legs, or mouth stuck... this is VITAL.
Having said all this... personally I have never found any need for a crate. What I have found invaluable though was a second-hand child-gate which we could put at various doorways, or at the bottom of the stairs to restrict access. SO useful!
