You have to entice him into it might take days but have it out always and put some treats in there to get him to go in there then when he’s quiet let him out and give him a treat. Too bad there wasn’t a dognip lol.
I’ve been doing that, unfortunately my other dog Lita thinks the treats are for her *grin*. She has also taken to laying in the crate so he can’t get into it, even though she has her own. So now I also have to work on getting her to leave it alone.
If it’s not the husband it’s the kids, and if it’s not the kids, it’s the dogs…I’m ready for the looney bin!! Sue in Pa
