The crate is a great management tool, and can be used any time you want to put your dog somewhere safe that you don’t have to worry about him – when you are home and preoccupied with other things; when you are at work and don’t want to worry about what your dog will get into; if you have friends over and don’t want to be worrying about your dog, etc. Give yourself permission to not be in dog-land all the time! It’s okay to put your dog in a crate.
Archie was highly reactive, excitable, and pushy. Since we started implementing some of the things we learned from your DVD that behavior has been reduced by about 75-80%. I can only believe it’s because of the few days of training we’ve spent working on these things with him. Thanks so much!-Diane R
