I've posted a lot lately since we got our first foster and quickly found she was really struggling with other dogs, and particularly our dog. Well, after much debate, we ended up switching for a different foster - Skylar will be able to get the attention and training she needs, and we now have Patton. He's a yellow lab mix (sorry, no pictures yet), and is a little shy but very very sweet and doing great with Scout so far.
I just want to thank you all for your support and advice as we dealt with our first foster experience. I'm so glad we stuck it out and didn't totally throw in the fostering towel after a not-so-great first try.
Now for my question: General Patton is quite the escape artist and gets out of the crate SO FAST it's crazy - got out last night and we didn't hear a sound till he made his appearance in the bedroom. So far, he hasn't done any damage or anything, but I don't think we want to leave him out all day while we're at work, at least until we know him a little better! So, tips for keeping him in the crate, please?
