i have started crate training bailey because the venue daughter #2 chose for her wedding & reception is not dog friendly. how dare they! she can be there for the wedding but she is not able to stay for the reception. go figure. because i cannot leave her home alone, no way, no how, we bought a crate to take to the venue. they said she has to stay upstairs, in the bridal suite, crated, during the reception. yikes! (daughter #1's wedding was totally dog friendly. just sayin'. shout out to la valencia hotel.)
we've had bailey almost 7 years and we've never had the need to have her crated, so this is new for all of us. she is ok for a few minutes but then she wants out. and will be quite vocal about it. we have fed her her meals in there, making it a yummy place. we've also left the door open so she can wander in and out, but she's never wandered in on her own. any tips you have would be greatly appreciated. the wedding is in 8 months.
until we meet again my friends-
