Resocialize Your Dog to the Crate

Avoid overly emotional greetings or

• departures. If you only use the crate while you are at work, change the expectation. Use the crate frequently (for short intervals) while you are at home. This will show your dog that the visit to the crate may not be a long one.

If you find your dog is having trouble

• relaxing without your physical touch, use obedience commands and position holding to teach your dog to relax without being directly next to you.

Build confidence. Practicing your • obedience commands in a positive manner will build confidence. Other activities, like agility or swimming, will help to raise confidence by presenting a series of challenges and accomplishments. Your dog is mentally stronger than you think.
