I posted earlier today about Gino, our 10 month old boxer. He was doing great for 5 months in his crate. All I had to say was "get in your crate" and he would run right in. I moved in with my g/f into a new apartment last week. Over the last 5 days he has been really stressed. Refusing to go into the cage, we would have to force him so we could go to work. Over the last few days he has been trying to get out. The crate's bars were bending and I'd have to hammer them back each night. Today I came home from work to find him out of the cage. The bed was destroyed, 4 pairs of shoes destroyed, the crate was bent into pieces, and he went poop in 2 rooms. I'm out of my mind at this point. I went to Petsmart and decided to buy one of those travel crates. They are thick plastic and held together with scews...very sturdy and no bars to bend. Does anyone have any good stories about these types of crates?? I hope!! Any advice appreciated.
