Whew! Crate training got off to a bit of a bumpy start. Some of the pups howled as if their life was over - I was literally sweating it out in the kitchen waiting for the 5 minutes to be up. Other pups were thrilled with the chewy treat in the crate and really didn't want to come out at all!
After each group of pups came out of the crate we romped down the long hallway in my house playing chase the breeder caretaker. The pups thought it was a fabulous game. I'm hoping that the next crate training session will be a little quieter than today!
