8) How do I stop my dog from whining or barking crate?
- Use Cratewear to make his crate safe & comfortable
- Put appropriate toys and treats inside crate, which will entice him to go in on his own.
- Feeding your dog in his crate can develop a positive association with it.
- Give your puppy lots of praise when he enters crate.
Again, make sure crate is in a good location. Veterinarians and trainers recommend covering crate to give your dog privacy he needs to feel secure. If your dog can see you, he'll want to be with you outside crate. Crate covers lower number of distractions your dog sees, which reduces barking and stress. Note: Dogs that suffer from separation anxiety should not be crated. If you feel your dog is suffering from separation anxiety and is showing clinical signs, please avoid crating him until speaking to a professional.
9) What's in it for me?
Dog crates give your dog a place he can claim as his territory. Providing your dog with a comfortable room of his own will help keep him off your furniture. In addition to safety and comfort benefits for your dog, Cratewear will enhance your wire crate to fit your decor, making crate an attractive addition to any room. All of this results in a more positive training experience for you and your pooch!

Dog Health Problems and Symptoms Where Do You Turn?Written by Tara Pearce
Continued from page 1
If you’re looking for dog care for a mouth sore, it would depend on kind of sore. My Shar-pei has “puppy pimples” which aren’t dangerous and cause no pain to her, so I just dab some peroxide on them, and that does trick. Of course, I got this tidbit from a breeder who got it from a vet. Please don’t just blindly follow what I say – it may not be appropriate for your dog.
