I have an extra kennel in my office for any additional dogs that may be staying with me. The top picture is what I looked over and saw while working on some things yesterday. Not only was Alfie just hanging out, but Darla managed to climb in behind him. As I was writing this, I had to stop and take the bottom photo of Marty just hanging out until it’s time to go out and do some work.
This is why I feel, if used and introduced properly, kennels can be such a powerful tool. It should be a sanctuary of sorts for the dog. There are always multiple ways to do things within dog training. Some just have a more impactful and lasting result than others.
