Crate Training

(Jennings, La. USA)

She goes crazy when I put her in a crest biting gate. Pulling with her huge toe nails and really fighting to get out. What do I do to get her to get relaxed in there. She will go on and on and on and on and on trying to get out like she becomes manic What can I do to let her know she is all right in there. She also accelerates in trying to get it open period. Please help they are going to be times I have to keep her in her crate for heartworm treatment And when I’m away from home because she wants to eat anything and everything

You need to make it a good place for her to be and never force her into it. This means working with her.

I highly recommend crate-training games.

As for eating everything, you need to start working with her using games.

There is also a Free Dog Training Workshop with Susan Garrett. https://www.facebook.com/groups/freedogtrainingworkshop/

If ever you decide to do a training program, Recallers is excellent. People may think it's a lot of money and it is but well worth it. It's actually cheaper than calling in a trainer every time there is an issue. This program gives you a great foundation and understanding. It also creates a great bond between you and your dog.
