Tip #8 – Allow Your Dog To Get Comfortable
You don’t want the pen to become something scary to the dog so let it go in on it’s own. It’s recommended that you don’t directly shut the door behind the dog as it goes in. Comfort is key in this process and remember to positively reinforce your dogs willingness to go into the pen on it’s own.Be sure she knows her den is safe. Not a prison. Speak in soft and pleasant tones as they take a look around. Sneak a treat into their den to entice them in and remind them they may get something good as a result.
