We have two almost 3 month Pyr-Karakachan puppies.
Both Bacon and Apple had no problem getting used to the crate. In fact, they go there to chew on their toys.. Now:
We have adjusted our work and school schedule in order for them never to be crated more than 4 hours during the day. Even though they have each other, they are still naturally reacting to when one of us leaves (pack separation anxiety, I am guessing). They bark a lot, whine and start yawning repeatedly and drinking lots of water (signs of stress- no accidents in the crate, though). I have tried music, enough chewing toys/treats and not coming to them while they are in that state in order not to condition this behaviour. Not too terribly successful. Any pointers?
I know they have to get used to this situation, do I just let them sort it out by themselves or is there anything I can do to help?
I don't know if it's anything, but tonight The Great Pyr . com website started tripping my antivirus program. The message I'm getting is that there is an embeded trojan virus in it. None of the other websites that I visit is tripping my alert, (german shepherd forum, craigs list, automotive forums, etc.) But this websit is, and it's not just the forum. I'm wondering if one of the banner ads is corrupted?
