Marley the escape artist! LOL Classic video!
I bet the only reason why Gucci never managed to escape the xpen was because it was the plastic kind. She did manage to injure herself pretty badly trying to get out of the crate.
I did everything the books said, start with short intervals, sit right there, etc. But when I had worked up to leaving her alone and I went upstairs for 5 minutes, she somehow CUT her ear?!?! Throwing herself against the crate...Blood...EVERYWHERE. It looked like a murder scene and I felt like the WORST doggie mom of the year. Needless to say, I was too traumatized from the crate, so I managed to train her w/o it. *sigh*
Like Belle, she does better w/ full run of the house, she's never destroyed anything, and she'll even wait to go potty til' I get home, or every now and then use the pad, but I worry far less about her if she's got her freedom. she does NOT like confinement...or to be away from me.
