He opened the food box (big Rubbermaid) this morning and had his whole head in. so I went ahead and fed him. Then I had both sit and lay down for cookies. When I tell him to kennel he jumps on top of the cage. I have to wrestle him in. I think "kennel" was his duck blind command?
Camping I know a lot of trainers who use "kennel up" to train their dogs to load into the truck. Actually that's what I use also. Also use it on my friend's occasionaly.
Thanks twist. When we loaded Ben the guy said "load up" and then "kennel" to get him in the cage. We just learned that his "release" command is also his name. So his name is basically an all purpose command.
