hello guys, i got a crate for my boxer , but its been like hell trying to keep her in there., the second she gose in she starts crying .. wont stop . and am too soft hearted, keep letting her out. any quick solutions pls?
When i had to leave to go to work and had to put the boys in the bathroom while i was gone. Zeus would cry like crazy and he would do it till he couldnt whine anymore. I am a softy when it comes to them as well. All i can say is put her in there short periods at a time. She is just a pup and she will cry. Just fight the temptation of letting her out because if you let her out then you lose the battle. Good luck and i know it is hard to do.
Put her in and leave her in. Don't give into her whining. Make it a pleasurable experience for her!!! Lots of treats and praise!! Don't let her out until YOU decide its time for her to come out. You can also cover the ccrate with a sheet or blanket, so she can't see you.
Ignore the whining, as hard as it is to do, but you are just playing her game by letting her out when she whines...Boxers are smart, she's figuring out if she whines enuf, you will let her out..They will stop, gets tiring making all that noise..Lol....Just ignore her, as cruel as it sounds...Is she whining when you put her in at bedtime or is this during the day? Cos if you are there, no reason to keep her in the crate..At nite, give her a toy, maybe turn a radio on low for her and just leave the room....
