BacardiPup89 Posted February 6, 2012 Share Posted February 6, 2012 I have recently decided to use the crate for potty training Bacardi. I put her in the crate last night around 2am and she slept through the night (after an hour or so of protesing the crate by whining, barking, and attempting to eat the crate) until 6am. I let her out to go potty and she did, came back in and then played and went back to sleep. I let her out again and the past dozen times or so when she is done going potty she refuses to come to me and come inside. I call and she ignores and keeps sniffing around or walking around the yard. She does not come to me at all. Is this because I have not worked with her long enough? I mean, I get down on the floor and act all silly and goofy trying to get her to come to me, Ive tried toys and treats, but she never wants to come back inside, I end up having to walk out in the back, grab her by the collar which insights panic within her apparently because she starts yelping and crying like I am skinning her alive or beating her! When all I have done is grab a hold of her collar to bring her in. My other questions is when I put her in the crate she sits there and chews the crate, and barks incessively (not sure if I spelled that right) Ive put chew toys in with her and toys and it doesnt seem to distract her. I normally would not have a problem with her making noises in her crate but I do not want her being distructive and chewing on the crate, hurting herself or losing teeth because of it. anyways, she is getting better at the potty training. Do you think that its a good idea to start taking her to obedience or training classes? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
