View Full Version : Roxy and Dusty slept in crates!

YAY! I think I finally got my big doggies to like crates. The used to go hysterical when I tried to put them in them, so I finally gave up. Well, you all know the trouble I am going through with the neighbor, so I so so want the dogs inside at night. And Roxy is crazy destructive. Well, I bought extra big crates yesterday. Climbed in them like a freakin idiot and pretended that they were so great that I wasn't going to share them with Roxy and Dusty. I had these gigantic bones in there that Roxy had picked out from Petsmart. By the time I climbed out of their crates, they were dying to go in there. They slept in them last night, and were totally content. I'm so excited!

LOL! What a mental picture that is! :D I'm glad they're learning to like the crates. I know you'll have so much more piece of mind now. So, is their house up for sale yet?

I did the same thing with Max, I went inside with treats & he fallowed & I stayed in it with him for a bit, he was a young puppy at the time

lol @ you in the crates!!!!

I'm so happy to hear that they liked them--they slept all night then??
Great news:)

When Kito first came to live with us, we were going to try to not let him sleep with us. The first few nights, he slept well in the crate, but soon started whining at night. My husband and I used to lay on the floor next to the crate until he fell asleep--we caved eventually, and he slept with us!!
