Training Tip Tuesday – Crate Training (well not really)

I am currently having an awesome time on holidays. Down by the beach. Lots of playing on the sand and water. Only downside is that in the house I’m not allowed on the furniture…. Hmmm.

If you look back at most photos of me sleeping around the house you will note I am either on the lounge or bed. This no furniture thing is a rude shock. So to stop me making myself comfy on the lounges during the night mum has bought my crate with us.

Now I’m not adverse to my crate. I have learnt that my crate is a nice comfy and safe place to hang out when we are at trials and mum needs to go off and do something like walk the course without me. I was taught it was a nice place because I would get treats when I was in there. Lots of praise for being in there and lots of praise for being quiet and relaxing in there too.

But Not On Holidays!!!

Nope crate is sitting nicely in living room and I am making myself comfy in all other non-furniture locations.

    Haha I like your stubborn refusal to sleep anywhere but the crate. Very cute.

      I love this place by the beach but really do miss my lounge. Maybe they can bring that away with them next time???

    Could get a Bodhi lounge and place it side by side with toddler’s lounge 😛
