God, I Really didnt wanna do this...
Well, i previously posted about my husky natalya... the one who eats everything (and i mean EVERYTHING!)... she still does it, not as bad tho... i recently have been in contact with her breeder ... she told me she thinks Natalya has seperation anxiety so she wants to destroy stuff so i stay home with her.... i wouldnt be surprised if this were true, because when i went to look at the litter of puppies, i didnt end up getting the one i wanted (someone got the deposit down on her first) so i picked Natalya... she wasnt part of the litter, but she was locked in a kennel type thing, behind the garage with another husky, sasha... she was 4 1/2 months old when i got her... had to re-housebreak her, teach her house manners.. she had fly bites on her ears (which healed up beautifully a couple weeks after having her).. i honestly dont think this dog had been in the house much... well, needless to say, its been tough with her, and i think the first few months of her life had A LOT to do with it.. the breeder is nice and you can tell she cares about her dogs, but i just went to her website a couple days ago and she has already bred sasha (who is only 1 1/2 years old).... well, anyway, we're borrowing a crate from my boyfriends sisters boyfriend who used to use it for his american bulldog (so its GIGANTIC).. he doesnt need it anymore... my question is, how the f*** do i get the dog in there? she'll go near it, but not in... the only time she went in was when i got in there (so its big enough to fit me , and 2 huskies ... 50lbs and 35lbs ).,.. tatyana will just walk right in and wags her tail but natalya is very, very scared of it.... i know not to use it as a punishment tool and i praised her earlier when i let her out (but i had to put her in it)...any suggestions? keep in mind i have NEVER EVER wanted to do this, because i dont think its very nice because the most i've ever done is put them in the kitchen with a baby gate when im not home.. but doesnt do the trick all the time... she has her blanket in it and a couple toys.. shes only going to be in it when we're at work... never when we're at home and not at night.. she has her own bed that she sleeps on... but she already does not like the crate... im sure it has to do with being locked up behind that garage for so long
