We bought a cage and started with the training on Monday night. We set it up in the living room and gave her all her food only in the cage. Zig is a very timid girl concerning new things and so she was very suspicious of the cage... When she tried to get to her food it looked like she did pushups . She went in with her front legs as far as possible so that her hind legs didn't touch the cage and then she bent down Out she came with one big backward jump (during which she usually hit the top of the cage which made a loud noise and Zig disappeared into the other corner of the living room). On Friday she went in the first time with all four legs and came out of the cage by turning around in it and walking out like a normal dog . So yesterday I put her bed in it and after she walked up and down a couple of times she was brave enough to go in and lie down and sleep!!
Here is she with some of her toys in the cage (we were cleaning yesterday and it was sooo convenient to put all the toys away in the cage ):
She was getting bored and destroyed the toilet paper roll
After we were done with the cleaning we moved the cage to Ziggys spot in the living room. Zig didn't like it... Took her about two hours (and some treats in the end because I couldn't look at it anymore) to go back in and sleep on her bed. She still isn't 100% convinced but we are getting there
