I am new to this forum so I do not know If this thread was opened before.
I have got a couple of questions to ask in regards to my puppy's behaviours lately. She is a 9 months pure breed Chocolate Labrador Retreiver.(Shes an outside dog).
She won't go in to her dog house where she used to sleep in. One day me n my wife came home and saw our puppy limping. She was kinda struggling to walk.
I checked her kennel and found out that a part of the kennel was somehow broken and I thought her leg got stuck in there. More than likely she hurt her leg in there. Since that day she refuses to go in to her kennel. We use treats to make her go in there but she does not want to stay more than a couple of seconds.
I bought her a trampoline so she could sleep on it. She sleeps on the trampoline but chews the corners of it. Because the winter is coming I do not want her to sleep outside of her kennel. I do not know what to do.
My questions are;
- How am I supposed train my puppy to make her sleep in the kennel,
- If I was to get/make a new kennel would that be a solution,
- How to make her stop that chewing habit?
Any help will be appreciated.
