Meet bear! 🐻 this 6 month old beagle/bassett hound mix joins us in puppy day school to resolve his extreme dislike for being crated. after a negative experience being boarded, bear became very stressed out while crated or confined. his owner reported he would no longer take treats or chews if he was crated. poor guy!
we kicked off the morning with a couple sessions of crate games and lo and behold, bear has been eating his breakfast in the crate with minimal fuss - just an occasional hound dog "woof!"
we'll also be working on basic manners like sit, down, coming when called, and loose leash walking. he's already making friends during playgroup - look at him tugging with wilson! ❤️ welcome to day school, bear!
