The crate is a highly confined space, and even the most mild-mannered dog may become defensive as she becomes stressed by the repeating agitations. If the crate is located in a high traffic area like the kitchen, relocate the crate to a non-central location such as spare bedroom or basement. Cover the front of the crate with a heavy blanket to block out visual stimuli.

Never stick your fingers at your dog • in the crate. While your dog is in the crate, leave her alone. Do not dwell around the crate; just say "hi," give a treat (if you like), and move along.
