Leerburg's Online Basic Dog Obedience with Ed Frawley

I thought this course was excellent. I am hoping for more to come. I don’t know what to tell you on how to improve but I can say videos are the easiest way for me to learn so I appreciated all of them. And I did practice on my dog after watching some of them. Thank you again; I loved the course and am hoping for more. Thank you very much for the opportunity to take this and to learn from your knowledge.

Question: I have a small 14 lb dog that I want to keep in the kitchen during the day while at work. How well would this pen would work? Does it have stabilizers that would keep the dog from knocking over the pen? Do you have any other recommendations short of using a crate?

Hi Cindy,

I have a small 14 lb dog that I want to keep in the kitchen during the day while at work. I want to give her some area to exercise while I’m gone. I was wondering how well this pen would work. Does it have stabilizers that would keep the dog from knocking over the pen? I’m sure she would be jumping up on the sides while I’m gone. Do you have any other recommendations short of using a crate? I do live in a small apartment.

Thanks,
Angie

Cindy's Response:

The only way to know is to train the dog to accept the ex pen while you are home. I don’t leave any dog I have doubts about in an >ex pen unattended. I’m not sure what you mean by stabilizers, but the taller ex pen is fairly sturdy. My 15 pound dog can scoot it around a little but she doesn’t knock it over. She has also been trained to an ex pen since 8 weeks, so she isn’t looking to get out. Some dogs simply don’t like being in the expen especially when they are left alone. Those dogs are best left in a crate so they don’t get into trouble.

I hope this helps,
Cindy Rhodes

On Leerburg's 11" Stainless Steel Litter Feeding Saucer

   
  This is a great idea for weaning puppies! The puppies still walk all over in the food, but they don't flip the bowls or get scared from the bowls moving all over the room. I also use one of the large saucers out in the barn for the barn cats- they all get their fair share of food without fights.
