A little over a week ago, I started leaving Barney uncrated when I am not home. Since then, he has seemed a bit calmer. Plus, and this is my fault really, when I would get home, I let them both jump on me. Admittedly I was as glad to see them as they were me. SO I have been working on getting them to not jump up when I get home. Then I give the affection.

Maybe it is just my imagination, but Barney does seem a little more relaxed than when he was crated during the day. They are both really big goobers still! lol

That's wonderful, Guy! Barney may be happier to be out with Tal now, instead of crated, and they may even be playing a little.

Standing ovation on that training, Guy.
I can imagine Barney's thought bubble: (nod to Pedigree TV ad)

"I am a good dog and I just want to be left out of this crate."

:) :)

That cracked me up!

I now have three little black furballs come to the back door when I get home! I think they are like the one that says I really, really missed you! lol.

I had not thought of him being happy to be out with Tal, but that makes sense. I always try to make sure I set them up for success. That's why I waited until I could leave Barney uncrated for increasing amounts of time. I did that with Tal also and it has worked for them both!

He's probably using more energy (being good) during the day, which is why he's calmer. I'm happy for you (and him) that he's such a good pup. Atta boy Barney!
