Yes! You can never have a greater feeling than when they first go into their crate on their own! lol. I think I warmed Deacon up to it but teaching him to go inside it. I used clicker training and used free shaping to get him to go in it... it took no time at all for him to get it, and soon after that, he started going in it to nap or sit and watch me do dishes or cook while I was in the kitchen lol. Maybe you could try that if you haven't!
He's getting better since my last post! He still runs from me when he knows its time to go in LOL but at night when I'm home, he will go lay down in it with a bone or a treat.. I see Deacon still has his white on his face! yay!
That's great that Mylo is getting better!! Deacon sometimes tries to run from me when I tell him to go in, but I think he's finally learning that when I say he has to go in, he's going to end up in the crate the easy way or the hard way and he's started opting for the easy way now hahaha! And yeah, the white is still on his face! I hope it stays! Gives him character lol.
