Ok......next in the list of questions. We are starting crate training today. The crate is in the living room were we sit...there are plenty of her favorite toys in the crate with her. An hour in the crate then she is leashed and taken outside to potty.....if she potties lavish praise and a treat then back inside for a bit of play time. Then back in the crate. She is not fond of this...howls whines yelps.....generaly acting like she is being beat to a pulp. Unfortunately the breeder we got her from did not crate but gave the dogs run of there house so I am figuring this while no fun is normal behavior. But I wanted to throw this out there to those of you more knowing in the raising of new pups....cause well I have not had a new puppy in about 30 years. So any comments will be appreciated and listened to.
