Ok she is officially four month old soon. Twice yesterday she growled and bit me hard when I put her in her kennel. It was not play biting. It really scared me. What should I do? I yelled "ouch", but she did it again at bed time. Is this just something that they go thru?

Do you make going the kennel a good experience or is it a punishment? I always give Buster lots of love and treats and toys before I put him in the crate or the kennel in our yard.

Kelly Robinson,

I have never used the kennel as a punishment. She only goes in at night or if I have to go somewhere and can't take her. I was giving her treats as she went in but she started going in almost on her own, with me just kind of guiding her. She was outside with me for a couple of hours and it was after that that she did this. I haven't had her in there at all today. I am afraid of a repeat incident. I will have to put her in there tonight.

I just wanted to let you all know she has not done the biting again. I don't know if it was just a fluke day or what but its been days and there have been no repeats of it. She is doing great. Thank you all for the advice!
