First a little info. before the crazy morning.

As most of you know Bear is our newest addition...   he is about 9 weeks old now.  We started bell training with him because I have heard lots of good things about it.  My mother in law puppy sat this weekend and she said he rang the bell!  BUT he tinkled right by the door...    I was excited he knew that is what the bell meant.

Night before last we were getting ready for bed and about to put him in his crate.  He was trying to tank up on water, but I don't let him right before bed because we would be taking him out every 20 minutes.  WELL he went and rang the bell.  My husband was like, well he must need to go out.  He took him outside and sat him down..    then he BOLTED to our mother in law's house (she lives behind us on the property.  she takes care of the dogs some and has a bowl of water for them on her porch) he KNEW that if he got outside he could get to water!  smart little booger!

well now this morning was scary.  he usually whines in the morning to be let out.  we were woken up by this horrific squealing and barking.  so my husband and i both jump out of bed and run down the hall.  Bear had gotten his paw stuck in the door of his crate!  we have the black wire collapsible crates.  He had stuck his paw between the bars then moved it down toward the latch and gotten it stuck.  He was chewing on the door thinking it would help him get out.  My heart hurt so bad for him because he would try to move it and would just squeal.  My husband removed the whole door and we FINALLY got him unstuck.  I thought oh no he is going to be hurt to bad!  NOPE!  He got up and hopped around wagging his tail...    he was free so he was happy!  My husband thinks that he KNOWS how we open the crate and so he was trying to get to that latch.  From how fast he is catching on to everything else I wouldnt put it past him.

He rigged up the crate after I left for work so he couldn't get his paw inbetween that part again.  But I just can't get over how fast this puppy is learning things!

It never ceases to amaze me how smart boxers are, so many things I never actually had to teach Kassy and now Frankie, they just seem to pick up on things!!! All of my friends are jealous that there dogs aren't as smart or well behaved!! :lol:

The first day Sadie had to stay in her crate while I was at work was a disaster.  When I came home at lunch, I decided to take her out first, put her back in her crate, then take Charlie out.  When I came back in with Charlie I heard barking and whining like I've never heard before.  Sadie has biten at the collapsible crate we bought (Life Stages) and the bottom part of her jaw was caught in the crate itself.  Scared the crap outta me.  I bent those back like I was Hercules.  I ended up buying a smaller crate that she stayed in till she was around 30lbs.

They are a pretty smart breed as I've also noticed with my girl. They seem to be able to learn and figure things out on
their own so quickly!

We also have a wire cage( wal-mart) we first got it she loved it, went to bed between 9 and 10pm. She would wake up at 4am or so, we just had her spayed and now same bed time, but now she wakes us up at 11pm. I have tried puting her toys bones, a shirt that i have worn, in her crate at night. They help but not for long. Help any ideas? :wall:

Oh boy, sounds like you are in for an interesting time. You will have to come up with some serious training to keep his interest, because they sure will come up with ways to amuse themselves.

:lol: I am glad he isn't 9 weeks now! Maybe this post maybe made him revert back though, because this morning we woke up to a HUGE pee spot right by the bed. ~X( To his defense he peed right by the bed on my husband's side. He must have had to go out and tried to get his attention (which Bear thinks sitting and staring at you will work.. but NOT if you are asleep.. haha)

I don't understand it though because they both ALWAYS go out right before bed and no water an hour or two before :huh:
