Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: moving a crate & Barking issue   Mon Jul 15, 2013 2:13 pm

we will probably be moving to an apartment from a rental house in the fall. Right now Kiba yips and barks LOUDLY if she's in her crate and we're home. If she hears us, she will bark. if we are quiet, she won't make a peep b/c she doesn't know we are there. That being said my concern is having neighbors who make noise during the day in an apartment will probably set her off. Any suggestions for training her to NOT freak out when she's in the crate and hears people in neighboring apts?

Also does it throw them off if you move the location of their crate? I may move her to our living room because i want her to like the crate more but if its going to cause her stress then im afraid to do it. Im willing to try anything to get her to be "okay" with her crate when we are home (or at least when she *thinks* we are home).

I moved Dizzy's and he didn't have any issues. As for the apartment thing, I think it might set her off to begin with, but I think eventually she'll realize that there is no one in 'her' place and will give up. Just warn your neighbors when you move in. Also, she might respond to your voice or your footsteps, I think they can differentiate between your family and strangers. Or you could also redo some crate training exercises with her with you home.

Then I think I'll try and move her crate as part of a step towards positive crate training so the room she's in is more of a family room. As for the noise in an apartment, I know some people are understanding of dogs, I'm just afraid of that one ahole who will complain the second day we move in about her barking during the day. I don't want to get kicked out or have enemies -I just want a smooth transition and it worrys me a lot Sad
