#6 – Crate training
All doggies needs a nice place to go when they’re feeling worrieds or wants to be left alones. A crate is a really good safe place to goes.
When I first came to lives with my humans, they’d gives me really yummy chewies and biscuits and stuff in my crate. Before I learnt betters, I thoughts everything in the house was mines to play with, so the humans would leave me in my crate when they couldn’t watch me to stop me doing stupid stuffs. (Yes, even Jaspers have been knowns to do stupid stuffs!)
It also helped me to learns about toilet trainings, as I wasn’t going to go toilets in my own bed!
I didn’t mind being in the crate at alls, as I was outs running arounds the rest of the times and it was actually nice to have a rest and be safe and cosy. Sometimes too, if I got overtireds I’d gets really zoomy and mads and starts chasing my tail and stuff and wouldn’t knows how to stop, so the humans would puts me in the crate with a biscuit and I’d gets all nice and calm and sleepy and haves a little rest.
Much, much laters, I ouchied both my knees and had to have big, big operations and wasn’t allowed to moves much afterwards. So I was glad that I liked being in my crate and wasn’t unhappy or stressed to be in theres.
So it’s a really good ideas to get your humans to teaches you to be OK in a crate, just in case!
