Crate Training at Misha May #1: K gets breakfast
K, rescued from Afghanistan and in training with Misha May, has learned to like a crate filled with his bed and toys and snacks. He had previously been too anxious and worried to even go in one. He associated being in a crate with being trapped or restricted, perhaps even in danger. We started very slowly but he is now willing to go right in to eat his breakfast or play or hang out. He is calm when the door closes and can spend up to 30 minutes with no problem. I am able to leave the room and he doesn't panic.
