Guest cookies4cookie Posted August 5, 2013 Share Posted August 5, 2013 Hi...newbie owner of a petite girl who should, conceivably, be very able to jump into the back of an SUV having much experience at the track kennel. However, she won't budge. I've tried helping her (putting her front legs up first), coaxing, cheering, saying "kennel up", throwing in tempting treats/toys, creating a comfy space, taking a running start...everything that has been suggested to me by experienced and wonderful owners, but nothing works. She enjoys the rides and we always go somewhere she wants to go, so I don't think it's an aversion to the car itself. She just becomes stubborn and won't budge. I don't know if she's unsure of herself or just wants me to pick her up! But, she's getting a bit heavy to pick up every time we go somewhere (and people laugh when they see me do it!)...any other suggestions to try?? Incidentally, she's stubborn about other training as well. I can't get close to getting her to go down or sit or anything. She's not hugely food-motivated, but I'm not sure what WILL motivate her! Thanks for any help... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
