Mondays is our day for obedience class with our private trainer. I take both Piper and Finnie and work Finnie first while Piper is in a crate (Piper gets so jealous if we work him first and he then has to hear Finnie doing all the fun things lol). We worked Finnie so out came Piper and Finnie went into the crate. Finnie also doesn't like being in the crate and hearing us so he will cry and bark occasionally so every now and then I have to tell him to settle etc. Yesterday, after perhaps 15 minutes of working Piper and just as we were about to do the drop on recall Finnie's tone changed from a irritated cry to one of pain, I rushed over and he'd gotten his jaw caught between the bars of the crate! Poor guy was so scared and hurting...at first I wasn't able to get him out (and was worried we'd have to cut the bars or something) but then superwoman strength and I pulled on the bars and he slipped out. OMG poor guy! I took him out, checked him out (no worse for wear) and comforted him before placing him back. He stayed away from them after that! I don't use a crate at home anymore fortunately, just a baby gate! And good boy Piper for maintaining your stay while all this was going on! Didn't even move an inch! I'm definitely going to keep a close eye on Finnie next week and we may have to work something else out if he tries this again!
