Note from the LADY:  Hooray! For three months, I encouraged Maggie to like her crate.  She received treats and rubs there.  I sat on the floor and read next to it, while she relaxed inside her crate.  I gave her a luxurious cushion and super-sized it, so she wouldn't feel confined.  Still, there was no way she would go into her crate without a good amount of convincing.  Finally, this weekend I was walking down the hall, and I noticed that she was laying in her crate without being asked.

Hi Maggie - thanks for coming over to visit my blog - I love making new friends! :-)

I think you're so lucky to be adoped by such a wonderful human who takes the time to help you learn good habits like enjoying being in your crate - you look very comfy in there!

My dog loves her crate... It took her some time too... but now it is her safe haven.

I'm now learning that nothing bad ever happens in my crate. Sometimes, when no one is looking, the treat fairy comes by and leaves a treat in my crate for me. Thanks for stopping by Honey and Jenn.
