I would like to add that crabbing at times can be due to a conformation issue or medical issue and it's therefore not always a matter of training. If a dog has this tendency, I would first want to rule out some medical/conformation issue by seeing the vet. Only after seeing the vet, would I then assume it's a training issue, just my two cents. This article goes in depth on crabbing. Good luck!
