BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION---TRAVELING IN THE CRATE
Riley has no problem entering the crate. In fact he is crate conditioned. He spends some time in his crate at home. However getting into the crate in my pickup truck is a different story. He goes up the ramp, enters the crate but comes out again.
1. He needs to be conditioned to stay in the crate.
2. He needs to be conditioned to ride in the crate
3. His first experience wasn't good. A toe got trapped in the wire crate and he cried out in pain until I was able to release him. I have since covered some areas with duct tape.
My plan includes conditioning him to be in a crate in a covered pickup truck, then take a short ride, then gradually extend to longer rides
