Tempting treats within mouth-reach, excited children at eye-level, the aroma of the turkey as it waits to be carved on the kitchen counter, the steady stream of people coming through the door—with all of this excitement, the family dog is often over-stimulated and underfoot. This situation can lead to big trouble!
One thing that can ward off trouble is a crate. A crate can be a quiet and safe haven for your dog during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. In this video, Karen Pryor Academy faculty member Laurie Luck demonstrates how to shape your dog to enjoy his crate during the holidays—so that you and your guests can enjoy the holidays, too!
