We are brining home our pembroke, Riley, on Sunday.  Everything I've read about crate training has said not to just put the dog in there but to use treats to train him to use the crate making sure…Continue

Our new corgi!

This is our newest family member, Pudge. We were going to name him Riley, but the breeder was calling him Pudge, and the name just seem to fit him perfectly!

"A personal anecdote from me: My brother's australian shepherd was eating off a plate when he was a pup, stepped on the edge and it flipped up. I'm not sure if it struck his nose or not but it made a whole lot of racket and scared the heck…"

"That is where your early socialization is key. For a well-socialized puppy who gets to see lots of new and fun things, and friendly people and dogs, one or two bad experiences are put in the context of all the good ones and don't stand out. But…"

"I was just coming back to make a similar comment. People talk about the "critical period" of puppyhood and how they can be scarred for life by events that take place within that period. While I think there's truth to it, it's not…"

"One thing we found with Jack was that the sudden intro to the crate did not make him dislike the crate, but the traumatic exposure to the car made him hate the car! So what we did was as soon as he cleared the vet's check-up (he'd already…"

"Good luck with your Riley! We used a crate with our only non-rescue corgi, Odie, which we got at 81/2 weeks old. If I remember correctly (9 yrs ago, and I'm getting old) he took to the crate right away. We started with a small crate and then…"

"Thank you all so much for the great advice! My kids (12 and 10) will be with me when we go to get Riley, so they will be able to help with keeping him engaged on our ride home. I feel better about the crate thanks to all of your suggestions. It…"

"Don;t worry about the slow introduction to the crate. Just make sure you aren't just shoving him in there. Make sure you talk to him in a comforting tone when you place him in the kennel the first time and if possible place the kennel so he can…"

"Like the other people who commented, Donny rode in my lap on the ride home while someone else drove. He slept the whole time, and when he did wake up, he was more interested in observing and chewing a treat than trying to escape. He was 8 weeks old,…"

Carla replied to Amy Berry's discussion New puppy and crate training question
"In my case, a slow intro worked very well because we dropped the crate off at the breeders the week before we were to pick Casey up. The breeder kept Casey and a sibling in her kitchen with the crate (door off so they could come and go freely) for…"

"I have had 5 pups and always used and still use crates. From the time I pick them up and always in the car to when they can't be supervised and at night. My dogs love their crates and some do eat in them,nap in them go in them to get…"

Beth replied to Amy Berry's discussion New puppy and crate training question
"I think crate-training advice is a little confusing. When we got Jack from the breeder, it was about a two-hour ride and we just put him right in the crate. There are not many options and a puppy on your lap can be seriosly injured if there is even…"
