Crate Training Boss
Hello everyone! I am just looking for some opinions about crate training Boss. We have not started yet because I had not decided wether I was going to do it or not....but now I am definitely thinking that it wont hurt anything,it will be useful at some point in his life, and since hes still technically a puppy ( a big puppy ) I should start ASAP. I am a little overwhelmed with how many dog crates there are to choose from...anyone have any suggestions on a good place or brand? Also, the main question I had was weather or not it was a bad idea to have 2 crates for him? He always likes to be in the same room as us....and we are mostly downstairs in the living room/kitchen or upstairs in our bedroom. I was thinking it would be a good idea to just get 2 crates so he has one in each room (yes I spoil the heck out of him ) and we dont have to bother with moving it at all. I definitely want to try and get him excited about one in our bedroom because the 50lb bulldog snuggling up with Braden and I all night is getting less cute with every minute of sleep and every inch of our bed that seem to be disappearing.
does anyone think that Boss, or any dog, having 2 different crates is a bad idea? Most of what I have read only relates to one single crate...But I figure if i can get him to enjoy being in one he will enjoy the other one too...and it would be like a little space for himself in both rooms.
Also, if anyone has any ideas or tips on crate training the average bully please share!!
Re: Crate Training Boss
We have two pups and three crates.They are various sizes and two are the solid style plastic ones and one is the metal collapsible one. This works for us with no confusion for the dogs. I find there are pros and cons to both styles. Ours didn't start out with crate training very well so we put them aside and waited till they were a little older. It was really easy the second round and we are so thankful we did. It's great when we go away and stay with people that might not appreciate our dogs in their beds. Plus it was just too hot with us all in the bed I can't imagine once they are full grown.
Both Floyd and Lola love their crates now, they go in and have naps in there if they want some quiet time, usually in the same one..lol..also at bedtime now I just have to tell them it's bedtime and Floyd automatically trots in to his and lays down to wait for his kiss goodnight. How old is Boss?
