of their goldfish, but for dogs, this is a serious issue that many of them (and their human
handlers) struggle with. In this post, we’ll go over some of the signs that your dog might not be
in the best emotional state.
A crate can be a great asset and a place of calm and safety for your dog. But getting your dog to
acclimate correctly to a crate is more than simply buying one and putting the little guy in it. Like
everything else when it comes to dogs, it requires research, patience, and decision-making.
Let’s go over some of the steps you’ll want to take to make sure your dog takes to a crate
