I just got a new customer with a new puppy. She is probably lab/pointer and came from a rescue situation on a farm. She was one of 10 puppies.
Stella is just 12 weeks old. She has a great temperament and is really very smart. And she is going to be a great dog.
But this is what we need help on. Stella was not crate trained and now she has to stay in her crate while the owners work. I go get her out about 12:30, feed her and get her outside. I have to keep her on an extension leash because there are holes in the fence that she could get through. And she has just started play keep a way and I don't have time to try and catch her.
This puppy has more energy than any dog I have ever seen. Wow! The problem is that when she comes out of her crate she is like a little tornado. She is so happy to see me - or the owners when they get home. She just goes crazy bouncing and jumping up. And she is so fast. But the good thing is that she does calm down pretty fast.
What do we do to train her to come out of her crate and not knock the bejeezus out of us.
