Hello, I have a question about cage training and play fighting. We have had a jack russell cross for over a year now (from a puppy) who we introduced the cage to pretty young and she's great in it. She never cries or even tries to get out, she will go in there when asked and couldn't be any more perfect. A few months ago, we added a second dog to our ranks, a male whippet who was also a puppy. The two dogs generally get along very well and spend a lot of the time sleeping in the same bed with each other (even when they have a choice of other beds to use!). However, our new dog is very anxious when put in the cage, even with our other dog. He will bark and whine continually and we haven't found a way of getting him to stop. The other issue is to do with play fighting. They play fight together a lot and chase each other around the house. Neither dog seems to be bullying the other one and both seem to start the fight an equal number of times. When they fight, they usually bite each other around the neck and on the odd occasion, one will go too far and the other one will let out a cry. They are obviously playing rather than properly fighting, but it seems that they only do two things - sleep or play fight, with not much else in between. The other problem with this is the amount of noise they make when doing this, as I'm sure our neighbours can hear them which isn't very fair on them. Is this something that we should try and calm down? When we ask them to stop, they do obey briefly but tend to go back to play fighting unless we keep asking them to stop. Some advice would be very much appreciated.
