Rudi's crate has arrived and we have already made some good moves - I gave her a really good walk and then we went to pets at home and picked up a few treats - hooves and a chew - we came home and built the crate - I say build I mean stand it up haha

She had a sniff and wasn't so sure and then that gorgeous smelling treat was placed in the crate an boom I cant get her out :) Cage Dog crate Kennel Animal shelter Net


I even closed the door to see if she would be ok with it shut and didn't even flinch :) yay!!!!

So pleased its working out for you - I hate it when people say ' oh that sounds cruel', most dogs do really love their crates, even those that take longer to get used to them.

It is amazing how true it is about crate training making it easier for house training also - we have had no accidents at night. I also once thought it was not what I wanted to do with my dog thinking of her being squashed in a cage but we got a good size and it's helped us so much with her behaviour :) so happy :) xxx

Before I got Dudley one of the children I look after loved to climb in the crate and close the door (she's 20 months), got a good relationship with mum who thought it was hilarious, we said I should have a childminding website with a picture of her in it! not sure ofsted would approve, she's quite upset that she can't go in it now that its Dudley's - may have to get a row of them for the playroom!!
