How Not To Turn A Cage Or An Aviary In Prison?

Easy way to whet the dog’s interest in the cage.

Part of the dog lovers begins to act according to the principle of “enduring and falling in love” and pushes the dog into the cage, as the police ramble the rowdy in the bullpen. As a result, the animal begins to fear. And it can even lead to aggression towards the owner. Do not repeat this error – interest the dog.

This simple scheme will help you:

  1. Play the dog or make it clear that you have something to eat;
  2. When the dog is interested, throw the treat / toy inside the cage;
  3. The desire to get inside revealed? Vigorously praise the dog, even if it only came close to the desired goal (approached or put at least one paw);
  4. Most likely, your dog either did not dare to get their treasures or quickly ran inside and the bullet jumped back. Do not despair, and everything goes according to plan;
  5. Be patient, do not stop a dozen attempts. When the dog begins to climb fully, reinforce the action with a team (for example, “Place”).
  6. Success is when you opened the door, and the dog did not rush the rocket out but remained in the cage. But do not hold it forcibly.

    What to use in the process – a treat or a toy – depends on the motivation of the dog. Put, you should understand that she likes it more – eat or play.

    Associations play a major role. Subsequent advice in the frame often helps not only to accustom the dog to the cage but also to cultivate warm feelings for it.

    When and for how long is it worth starting to close the cage / aviary?

    The main thing – do not rush. When you associate a cage with positive emotions, the dog will show more interest to it: it will study it, go back and forth 100 times a day. Make an entry free.

    Transfer the feeding exclusively to the cage – let it be associated with food intake. Start closing the door from the second week – at first, it will be enough to 60 seconds.

    Is it howling or scratching? Do not react! Let the dog out and offer a treat when it calms down. Otherwise, you can turn the pet into an angry buffalo, which again and again rushes to the exit, ramming it, and thus awakening the owner’s desire to open the door immediately. Offer the dog a different scenario: “you sit quietly – I let you out or give you a snack.”

    When your furry friend starts to sit still for about 10 minutes, you can leave the room (in the case of the aviary – hide from the sight of the dog) and leave him alone. The probability of barking, whining, and rebellion increases by two times, so initially leave just a half minute. Then increase the time of his absence. Your main assistants are a sequence of actions and confidence in yourself and the result.

    Four popular mistakes that are best avoided.

    1. The cage is used as punishment. In this case, to achieve the normal behavior of an animal in a cage without screeching and attempts to get out is unreal. Because the biggest mistake is made – the cell is connected with punishment;
    2. Opening the cage when the dog is excited and banging on the door. Usually in initially failed attempts to reassure her. It was stated above in the text.
    3. Inadequate requirements for the dog. Do not leave the dog in a cage for 16 hours that is, for the night plus the whole working day. In this case, about any love for his place of speech can no longer go. Provide her at least an hour and a half morning walking.
    4. Choosing the wrong cell. For example, a pallet may unpleasantly rattle when a dog enters it with its paw. For some animals, this is no less a reason for discomfort than for you — a creaking sofa from which springs protrude. Do not forget that the cell size should be such that:
      1. Its length was equal to two body dogs;
      2. Its width was one and a half body dogs;
      3. The dog could calmly stand up to its full height and there was still free space above its head.
      4. Recall the main aspects of dog cage habituation:

        • Do not push the dog inside with physical force;
        • Do not scold her when she is in a cage – let the dog have a space in which nobody touches her;
        • Feed the dog only there;
        • First, close the door for no more than a minute to avoid stress;
        • Tie a cage to get goodies and pleasant impressions.
