Crate Games?

Does anyone who reads my blog have this DVD?

I am thinking of getting it after yesterday's show. Bug was super-silly (in a good way) about his crate. Darting into it, hanging out of it, ect. I am blessed to have two dogs now that really dig their crates in a show environment (Ike & Bug).

Considering my intention is to keep playing in different venues and everything I have heard about Crate Games - I think it might be a worthwhile investment for me.

Has anyone worked it personally?

Last year at the Tracy Skelnor seminar I attended her Border-Jack displayed some of his Crate Games skills. She spoke quite positively about it - and obviously based on her dog's behavior at the seminar I tend to view it in a positive light.

Thanks all.

I have 'Crate Games' and think it's super. I've never met Susan Garrett or been to any of her seminars, but I suspect I would be a fan of her training methods.

The DVD is really well made and it shows all the various steps in training very clearly.

I watched it for the first time a few months ago and was just thinking I need to watch it again. It's a great method for teaching self-control which is a subject I'm currently very interested in!

I don't have Crate Games but you know I'm obsessed with her 2x2 method... ;)

I got Crate Games last winter for my Jack Russell and loved it. We both liked to play the games, and it helped him be a lot quieter and relax in his crate a lot more at trials this summer.
It is a great winter indoor activity too.

I borrowed it from a friend and can see if she minds me sending it on, if you want?

I am playing Crate Games with Pixel and LOVING it. It is a great way to build excitement for training, and for the crate.
