The Sunday Crate Battle


In this video, you can see for yourself how easily Roxy goes into her crate for meals but when we need her to go in for a long time so we can go somewhere, she does not go in easily at all!  It took two of us to get her before we went to church this morning.  Since she chewed my slipper again when we left her free, we decided we can't trust her to be good while we are gone so need to crate her.  We now take her along with us when we go for an hour to play pickleball at our neighborhood courts.  She seems to prefer that even on hot days to being left alone in the crate.

We've been doing all her feeding in the crate so she associates it with good things; however, it does not seem to be working very well.  We took on on two walks not too long before trying to crate her in the hopes she would be tired enough to enjoy some down time.  Anyone have any suggestions to help us out with this?

She sure was saying thanks but no thanks.
