Crate Work

Vinson is doing very well with crate training. He sleeps in the crate every night, but we've also been working on getting him used to napping in the crate for an hour or two during the day. He's taken to the task without whining.

We never use the crate as a punishment, as that would cause Vinson to associate negativity with the crate. We also never leave him in the crate with his collar on to eliminate any chance of him getting caught or tangled.

This approach is really working well, and will ultimately lead to a dog that can easily be left alone in his crate without concern. Way to go, little buddy!
