Josh and I have been really impressed at how well crate training (or kenneling) Sammy has gone. He seems to like his crate and it works well when we travel to visit our parents because he always has his little place. We occasionally muse about how great it would be to crate train our kids someday...and usually people laugh at us.
Well, for all you skeptics out there....
See, it can be done!
In fact, this little guy was so well trained that we didn't even have to tell him to "get in his crate," he just jumped right in and shut the gate himself. And he was perfectly content.
Really, he did go right in. This is our friends' son, Corban. They stopped by on their way to the airport and while we were all talking Corban ran around the house playing with Sammy and then jumped in Sammy's crate and lay down. Sammy wasn't too sure about that.
