Crating in the Car... Tired of the stigma!

Why is it that people see my dogs crated in my vehicle, and assume they are being crated because they are bad? My dogs don’t have to be crated in the vehicle, but it’s safer so I choose to crate them in the vehicle…

It has happened several times now. Someone sees Bae in his crate in the back of my SUV and make a stupid comment like, “You’re just too excited so you have to be locked up!” Like, what. Stop. That’s not why he is in a crate.

My dogs don’t really listen to strangers.

They are well mannered, but don’t really take commands from anyone other than myself. With that said, it annoys the crap out of me when someone assumes that a dog is not trained properly because it does not sit when they ask it to (especially in high stress environments, like a vet hospital for example). I don’t really want my dogs to listen to strangers, so it doesn’t bother me that they ignore commands given by other people. But what does bother me is when those people assume that my dogs don’t know how to sit on command just because they didn’t sit when they were asked to (by anyone other than myself). Not to mention, everyone uses different verbal commands and hand gestures. You just can’t assume that everyone uses the same commands.

Meet Samson, the Great Dane. He is deaf and possibly partially blind. He is estimated at less than a year old. He is not very good on his feet and often stumbles. He spent much of his puppyhood in a crate because he was just too big and “too much” for his previous home to handle. One of the doctors I work with saved him from euthanasia. He will be going to a Great Dane rescue who will hopefully find a home for him that can work around his special needs. Samson, despite his clumsiness, is a very sweet boy. I’m sad to see him leave the hospital, but I’m also happy that this special dog gets a second chance.
