I thought that looked like a schnauzer! I have 2, Toby, a 6 yr old black male, and Missy, a 3 yr old silver female! They are like members of the family! I agree with the crate training! My doggies both have one in the end bedroom and when we go away during the day and then also for sleep, we say "go to bed!" and they run for the crates and wait for us to shut the doors. They have a rug in the bottom and a chew toy to keep them company! Saves on the floors too!


CRATE TRAIN!! It's the best thing you can do for him and yourself! It will become his home, his safe place. It'll be hard at first, harder on you than on him! put a nice blanket down and toss in some treats, let him go in and get them and come right back out. Do that quite a few times so he get's used to it, really comfortable with it. Then, toss in a couple of treats and shut the door for a couple of minutes. Then let him out. Keep doing that until he's pretty comfortable with it. Then when he falls a sleep, pick him up and put him in his crate. It really does become their home. A place where he can go and get away from everything. I have 2 Jack Russels and they sleep in theirs all the time. Even over night. Keeps them out of trouble and safe and let's me sleep without worries! I've trained dogs for a long for a long time. If you have any questions, let me know. I'd be more than happy to help if I can.
