  4. Guilty About Crate Training

    Dog Training Forum
    I have an 8 week old whippet, Winnie. I'm on about day 5 of crate training and it's taking its toll both physical and emotionally.

  10. Separation Anxiety + Crate Training

    General Dog Forum
    Fellow dog owners, my recently-adopted 2-yr old 75lb dog seemed like the perfect pet for the first month or so that we had him. He was already housebroken (although not microchipped) and we didn't bother crate training him because he seemed so well-behaved when we were gone. After a month went...
