I agree with Steve about boredom, and especially about crating. My dogs (3
right now) are always raised in crates and they consider it HOME, sort of a
safety blanket. When they get tired they go crawl in the box and go to
sleep. It's not a given how a mature dog will react to a new idea. If you
decide to start with a box, leave it open for some time (days) and put his
toys in it and toss a biscuit in there for him to fetch, now and then.
Don't make the crate punishment... make it fun. This is all IMHO, but it
p.s. Pardon the gender specific language, I have 2 boys 1girl.
This ends my Dr. Doolittle routine, but I have dog pictures if any body
wants to see !! shan
