Gracie and Raider's Puppies Week 5: Fear and Fun.
This week we will experience a mild fear period. Because of this we will be cautious of new exposures. We will mainly be introduced to passive enrichment activities, so we don’t unintentionally pick up a long-term fear imprint. Shhh...separation anxiety crate training also begins this week.
To crate or not, that is the question.
A crate is a den to be used while the owner can’t supervise them. Intelligent use of a crate provides a place of safety allowing a dog a place to settle down and ward of destructive behavior.
Do not use the crate for extended periods of time, it’s not a dog sitter. It doesn’t provide an outlet to release energy. You must offset crate time with adequate physical exercise and mental stimulation.
