    Default Out of Crate Training

    Hello! Does anyone have any advice on training my two year old bulldog to stay out of his crate all of the time, day and night????

    Hummmmm...Close the door?

    A lot of dogs find their kennel as a security place/blanket. Try closing the door or get it out of the house n simply put a bed on the floor but in a different area. See what happens.

    Yep, as Helene stated...once out, close it up.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I agree w/Helene... I leave the crate opened, so my crew know when they could get into trouble (hence the vacuum cleaner) they relax in there until the torture is over... Lol

    Bella likes to lay in hers!
    When we get home from being out she is usually laying in it (the door is left open) or she’ll be on my bed.

    Wrangler doesn't really want to be in his. When he is allowed to roam the house and it's time for him to be back in it, he resists. But I can't leave him out like when im gone or anything because he makes a mess. He also like to mark his territory on everything,, which I heard could be because he isn't fixed. He's also a chewer. I have to be watching him constantly. If any blankets, shoes, kids toys, or anything is left out, he pees on it. I actually have an old indian statue in the corner of the living room, and he pees on it too. is this just because he isn't fixed or is this something I can fix without having to get him fixed??

    How old is he? Have you had him as a pup?

    Ahh yes Wrangler the one that also has skin allergies. Just dawned on me your other post.

    Basically your dog is bored. Dogs don’t do all that if their energy is burned off. Like example, do you walk your dog before going out or work or after supper etc? Even if he’s fixed, he’ll still chew on things n pees in the house, @ almost 3 yrs old fix or not he’ll still do what he’s doing if he’s not discipline or trained. From what I’m reading, he’s not allowed to roam the house cause he always makes a mess as you stated. So basically he spends a lot of time in his crate, correct? If so, that’s your problem there why he doesn’t want to go in it.

    One more thing regards your other post, get him off Beneful. You’re not feeding ANY protein to your dog(s). Protein = stop chewing shoes.

    Louie is 2 now and he started marking everything around 10 months or so in the house. he got neutered just before 1 and the indoor marking stopped. He has however marked inside other peoples houses. Louie can’t have any bedding in his crate when he is home alone. He would tear apart the crate pad and he actually ate a chunk of blanket.

    He was trying to hide the “Evidence” so hey, what better way to eat it. Not as if you’re going to check in his poop.

    Wrangler doesn’t have bedding either cause he chews it up. Thanks for your advice though.
