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.
Subject: Crate Training (7 months) Mon Jun 02, 2014 5:26 pm
I have a 7 month old pup and we haven't had to get a crate as there is usually someone home throughout the day and if not we put him on the patio (more recently inside) for up to 2 hours. There is the occasional accident inside while we're gone (>1hr) but he's otherwise good. However I plan on getting my own place for when I switch back to a bigger school (grandparents wont be able to fulfill his needs) and I think it would be safer to have him crate trained for when I'm not around. How would I start this since he's been so used to being not caged up? My other dog is almost 13 years and hasn't been caged since around 1yr. For now it may seem unnecessary because there is someone home almost always but I'm thinking towards the future for his safety and the safety of any furniture or loose items. He's not destructive but you never know..
