Talented K9 What To Avoid When Kennel Training
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this article I want to give you some tips on things to avoid while Kennel training your dog. There are several things you can do that will make your dog hate his kennel, and there are things you can do that will make them throw a fit. Most people don't want either of these. A dog who hates his kennel will be highly unlikely to go in willingly, and once in will try everything he can to get out.

There are some dogs that hate their kennel so much they pick up obsessive behaviors in their crate such as barking non-stop, spinning, even self mutilation. Some dogs scratch and paw and whine, this isn't fun for you, nor is it healthy for the dog.

One thing to avoid when introducing your dog to the kennel is to just shove them in and shut the door. This is a sure thing to get your dog scratching at the door, barking, whining and wanting out! This is certainly not the way to go!

Next thing to avoid is letting them out when they are throwing a fit. If your dog is doing everything they can to get out, barking, screaming, whining, spinning. Do NOT let them out!!! This simply teaches them that in order to get you to let them back out, they NEED to repeat this behavior next time they are in there. HUGE Mistake, and probably the biggest people make!

If your dog or puppy is new to the crate, you also might want to avoid putting the crate in the bedroom the first night. This varies as it can help some dogs. Most of the time though, you end up with a night of no sleep due to a dog that won't stop crying.

These are just some of the major things I see people do all the time that I wanted to get a note out to people to avoid! Hopefully you learned something and perhaps even figured out WHY your dog does what he does!
