Samson is out of his crate!
« on: May 26, 2005, 06:22:45 pm »
Samson has been out of his crate full time for about 2 weeks now!...He still has it but I leave the door open so he can go in & sleep when he likes...I love it because I feel much safer knowing that if someone came in that shouldn't be here he could actually get them...Now, I'll let you all know when I start sleeping back upstairs in my bedroom at night...lol..(We don't allow Samson upstairs...cat s' domain)..I have to sleep on the family room couch so Samson feels safe...lol!

Poor Angus!...He is SO misunderstood. ..lol...I started small with Samson...I would leave him out of his crate while I went outside for 10 minutes...Then I worked up to a 30 min. trip to the grocery store.  (I live in a small town)  At 1st I Sammy proofed everything & then I would leave an old pillow out or a toy that had seen it's better days...When he passed those tests with flying colors I would leave him longer...like for a 2 hr. trip to shop for things in the next big town...Of coarse I never left anything dangerous for him & made sure to unplug any cords he could reach...My next step is moving back upstairs to my own bedroom...That's a tough one!...Once I tried to sleep on the couch in the formal living room where he is baby gated out of & he spent at least an hour craning his neck & looking over the baby gate to see me...I caved in & came back to his area to sleep...Now don't get me wrong..he's a damn good dog & not spoiled at all...LOL!
