Pens and Crates

I love pens as a management tool. They can be a safe haven, a way of managing dogs around other pets and people to prevent unwanted behaviour (jumping up at dinner, chasing the cat, running and barking at the door), and a way of limiting options for an over-excited or agitated dog to help steer them onto appropriate and self-calming behaviours.

But they are not foolproof!
