Title: Crates......
Post by: Hanna Banana on August 06, 2007, 11:03:53 AM
Today I went back to work, stuck both dogs in the crate - Hanna has not been crate trained but since Kash will be when we are not home, we decided that she would also instead of sitting outside his tourmenting the poor guy.

Well my Dog Nanny just came over and called to say both dogs were fast asleep when she came in the door.  Kash is a bit vocal at first, but he has gotta learn.

So day one of back to work is going well:)

Nice- great to hear both are doing awesome in their crates. Sounds like Hanna is being a trooper about it.  :thumbsup:
It must be hard going back to work and leaving the new guy alone. At least you have a nanny!

we just decided the opposite and realized Sophia is a champ if we leave her UN crated.
Go figure...

I'm glad they're doing well!  It was definitely hard leaving Brody when we first got him!  I'm glad Kash is doing so well!

Hanna is totally taking one for the team.  I think because their crates are next to each other and they can see one another it takes away some of the anxiety.   They are not touching however but a good 6 inches apart.  I put on classical music in the livingroom and the a/c.

Have them a cheese Kong  - hers is Pink his is Blue and some treats, so I am sure they ate, chatted a bit, then took a nap.

Hanna has been super big sister!!!!     I can see steak dinner comming!
Kash already knows sit too - they are like two peas in a pod.

Sounds like what I did with Ollie & Phoebe.  Worked like a champ too cuz Ollie did not like being crated.  Now when they see momma leaving they run to their respective cribs:-)

yeah, it seems to be working so far.   Which is good because I feel a lot better if Hanna is in a crate when we are not home rather than roaming out an about.   Safer, and you are not thinking the entire time on your way to dinner - did i pick this up, remember to close that door or what not.

Oh Heather im glad its going well. I just hope all turns out well when we get Ellie a brother.
We have decided that when we get the puppy, i am taking a few days of work and Ant will take a few days off when i go back - we did this with Ellie and it worked out fine. Then we have family and friends who have offered to let the puppy out of the crate while we are working until he is older enough like Ellie to be let out just once while we are working.
