Leerburg Q&A
Ask your training question here

Question: A prominent dog trainer told me that if a female dog trainer raised a male puppy for him it would cause problems later when the puppy comes back to live with the male owner. Have you heard of this?

Hi Cindy,

A prominent dog trainer recently said that if a male owner who had a male puppy he couldn't raise himself the first few months of the puppy's life, has the puppy raised by a female, this would cause later problems when the puppy comes back to live with the male owner  He said that if she raised a female puppy for the male owner, there would be no such issue  He said that if a male raised a puppy for the male owner, there would be no such issue regardless of whether the puppy is a male or female  Have you or Ed ever heard this?  Any opinion?

Keep up the great work. You & Ed are terrific.

Cindy's Response:

I'm sorry but that makes no sense whatsoever and sounds chauvinistic. I wonder how prominent a trainer can be that makes such a silly statement. :)

Thanks for the kind words.

Cindy Rhodes

On Leerburg's Full Vent Aluminum Crate 2 Door Powder Coated

This is an incredible crate; fit and finish are first rate. It's durable yet surprisingly lightweight. We've always used the plastic airline crates, yet after bringing home our first rescue we wanted something a little more reliable and roomy. We bought the XL size so he'd have room to fully stand and fully lay down and stretch out (he's a 70# Mal). Loki took right to it, walked right in and laid down. The design is great - lots of airflow, plus he can see out all sides. And the double doors (the second door is on the "back right side" in the product picture) are perfect; it let's you orient the crate either longwise or sideways for entry (this is a really nice feature). This is THE only crate you should ever need, were I to do it again I would just buy this for a puppy (use barriers to make the inside smaller until the pup grows up); we ended up spending more than this for the collection of plastic crates now in our garage. If I ever buy a crate for another dog in the house, it will be another one of these.
