Tip #7 – Encourage Your Dog To Love Its Pen
The dog wants to be around you so put the crate or kennel in a place where you can be heard and maybe even seen while resting. Make the pen look comfortable to the dog and you’ve got it’s attention focused on the pen. Lure the dog in the pen with it’s favorite snack, if you need back up direct the dog with a leash. A few snacks in the back of the pen should be enough for the dog to go inside willingly.
