    DefaultWhoever said dogs don't think

    doesn't know Labs.
    Recently Ernie decided he wants to stay in his crate if I don't take him to work, and started going to it about half an hour before I go then refuses to get out. He needs to move around with his hips, being on Pred he pees a lot and I can't trust him with the Xmas tree so prefer he goes outside in the sun. Also I put Gems in that crate as they can't be alone unsupervised together or in the house.
    I bribe him, give him a firm command, beg, plead, get in the crate and push and pull him. Nope. Not budging. I even lay a trail of treats around the house while he sits in the crate drooling. Nope..not getting out. He refuses.

    A couple of days ago I started locking the crate at night so he can't get in while I am getting ready for work. Who has to lock their dog out of the crate. lol Last night I forgot, but he didn't.
    A half hour later I was going though the usual routine and trying to figure out if I could get home in a few hours to let him out later. What do I do. In desperation I went out the back door, knocked on the front door and ran back through the house and locked the crate while they were barking at the front door.

    He went to the crate and the look on his face. It was funny. How dare you trick me. You cheater..cheater..He tried to open the door, rattle the crate and stood on top trying to get in, then came out and barked at me.

    I totally agree. Gracie likes to go down stairs with my mom...except when she is down there she is into EVERYTHING, so when I try to get her out, she runs under the coffee table. I can be holding a piece of prime rib out that door and she won't budge. Smart...very smart

    LOL; I am so glad I don't have the only neurotic dogs when I am trying to leave the house. It's a major outsmarting for me to get out. lol
