long story short, my pup doesn't like to be locked up at all. shes managed to bust outta everything i've put her in. tonight, she went in her cage, all by herself, and laid down! i guess she is finally regarding it as hers (even though she spends at most 2 hrs/day in it...the only time she stays in it good is when i'm at home. every other time i leave she busts out in about 2 mins. anyways, i told her what a good girl she was, and she went in and out about 3 times in 10 mins !
