Trainer Melinda is trying different ways to keep Bubbles busy when she is crated. Long lasting chews are great for enrichment, and Melinda makes sure that anything Bubbles has is safe for her to chew. Antlers make great long lasting chews because they whittle down gradually and do not splinter. They also help clean her teeth! Bubbles stays busy with an antler so her mind doesn’t wander. This helps Bubbles see that crate time can be rewarding. Even if other dogs or people are moving around in the house, Bubbles doesn’t mind. She has work to do with her antler! Making the crate a positive place creates a little zone of her own. This will allow her family to enjoy peace of mind knowing she isn’t getting into any trouble in the house if they aren’t able to supervise. When she goes to her crate, she gets a special chewy, and everyone is happy!
Great job keeping busy, Bubbles!
