Crate Training - Its me or the dog
I love it!!!! After watching this program "its me or the dog" - about a neopolitan Mastiff named Prince, the trainer made the dogs owner get in the crate just to see how boring and cramped it was. The trainer specifically said no more than 3 hours in the crate, that it should be used sparingly...I could not agree more. I think more people would rather crate their dogs than walk them. Basically what I have taught is that a tired dog is better behaved and happier, physically, mentally and emotionally. This woman was actually having to drag her dog into the crate, the dog hated it so much - it is no wonder.
