Q. My dog doesn't like his cage, I leave him in it he chews up the bars trying to escape Now he has destroyed his cage, What can I do to change that?
A. Your dog has separation anxiety. You can start by making his cage seem "cozier" by covering the bottom with blankets and covering the top of the cage with blankets to make it like a den. Begin feeding your dog in his cage and teach him to go into his crate for a treat. You can even sit beside him while he is in his crate and give him treats. Overall you want to teach him that his crate is a good place where good things happen.
