Does your new dog stress you out? If this is the case, the dog might require additional training. Investing extra training time into your dog will make him more obedient. The piece that follows is sure to get you off to a good start with training.
While training your puppy or dog to use a crate, introduce him to new concepts slowly and gradually, so he is able to adjust to the changes without feeling stressed. Once your dog is accustomed to being in the crate, try closing the door and giving your pet a treat through the wire. Begin by leaving the dog in the crate for about ten seconds, then increase that time by small increments. Freaking out your dog is a sign that you need to slow down.
