Default Article on Crates

This seemed like a good article on crates and crate training.

Great read. I particularly liked the "crate as a time out" part. Ponyo can get way too excited at meal times, and some days we have to put her alllllll the way back in the crate until she calms down and is quiet for at least 30 seconds haha

Between your post and that article I feel competent now to make decisions now about crating. I'm waiting for the teeny, tiny pink open wire crate I ordered for our new chito arrive in the mail and feel confident that it's the right thing. We won't be getting her until after Christmas, so it will be here in time. We are taking our camper to FL to pick her up. We'll be stocked with a new food bowl, new bed, and lots of potty pads. Not to mention lots of tiny pink clothes. We don't crate Mickey when traveling in the camper, but I will be taking the new crate for the new dog. He sleeps with us in the camper (but not at home). We will be allowing him to continue, while she sleeps next to our bed in her new crate. If anyone has advice or suggestions, please share them.

I love crate training since I have a 2 pound chi its her safe haven 😊 its open the whole day but at night she knows its bed time she goes in and I close it and she stays in her crate if I have to run errands and I can't bring her for her safety 😊😁she loves it , its her safety zone and I dont put cover on it so she can see everyone 😊


She's under her blankie right now if u can see her little butt sticking out lol😁
