A little background: We have crate trained both of our dogs from puppyhood. They are in the crates (in our bedroom) at night and when we are away from the house. We are never away over 5 hours without them getting a break, and usually less. The reason we started to crate is because we have a very old house and there are just too many dangers for chewing dogs. When the dogs go in the crate during the day, they get a peanut butter and treat filled kong (that's the only time they get them). Now the issue: Our older dog, Luna, loves her crate. She rarely ever fusses in it and if you say "crate up" she runs for the room. The baby (8 months old) loves to go to the crate at night and is fabulous then. But, during the day she really doesn't want to go in, has to be coaxed in, and has actually ripped open her nose twice trying to worm her way out of the crate. Right now, we are trying to put them in for very short periods (5 minutes) and letting them out and rewarding so that maybe she will associate the crating with happy things. That's the only idea I have at the moment, other than just not crating them, but I have no idea where/how in the house we could contain them from harm that she wouldn't dislike just as much. Since you all are experts: Help!
