Dog  Spotlight!

Hi my name is Archie. I have good house manners and get along with dogs and kids, but I don’t love my crate all that much (I wasn’t consistently introduced to it at an early age, but I do fine at the kennels at ODHS). For my at home crate, I need to be acclimated that it’s a positive place to be. Otherwise I may tend to bark while I’m in there. Feeding me in there and giving me special crate only treats or safe toys will help. If you are home a lot and I don’t have to be crated for a long time, that helps too. This behavior won’t change overnight, but there are a lot of tools you can use to make crate training work. I'm ready to please my new owner and learn how to be a good boy with the right training, directions, and boundaries. Come meet me in person and see if we have a connection. Love, Archie
