The whole idea about having a pup in the crate is for her to do a number 1 or number 2 in the crate. Dogs are a VERY clean animal and they will not eat or live where they go to the bathroom. This is when they learn to hold it in,Its a little more cleaning for us but its the best way to train her. If you take her out and she comes in and then does her business all you have to do is bring her in for about 30 seconds and then take her right back outside and she will go out there. It's the change in temperature from outside to inside that makes them come in and go right away. Best of luck ;-)

Expertise

I studied with Jean Donaldson in San Francisco in 2002. She is one of the foremost dog trainers anywhere and I sought her out and traveled from Chicago to work with her. I am expert in all phases of dog development in regards to training. I can offer advice from young puppies through adult including aggression, separation anxiety and barking. While aggression is often handled best in person by a skilled positive reinforcement trainer, a lot of advice can be spread in this forum. I have written EBooks on separation anxiety and barking and am currently writing a book about dog aggression.

Experience

I have been working as a full-time professional dog trainer since 2002. I only use positive reinforcement techniques and am well-versed in using the clicker. My clients do not have to use a clicker to have success using my techniques. I started teaching 14 classes a week for the first two years while I was building up my private practice, Chicago Paws. Since 2004 I have worked exclusively as a private trainer in the Chicago area. On January 1, 2007 I launched an online version of my business that can be viewed at Watch and Train. At WatchandTrain.com you will find streaming videos for purchase that play directly on your computer and cover a variety of specific topics including house training, jumping, come when called, counter surfing and leash walking.
