Pup 8mnths, not keen on going back into kennel.

Pup is 8mnths . Sometimes an issue,  she will slink off and try and avoid going in. I usually get hold of her collar and steer her in the right direction, I can also step close and put some pressure on  her and just reaching for the collar is enough to get her heading in the right direction.   She will also respond to a direction hand signal which is sometimes enough to get her Moving.

Her favourite is to go and hide behind a wee punga tree, where im guessing she thinks  I cant get her, but  I can reach in and get her by the collar,  She is also rolling over, feet up, to avoid going in when she knows im going to put her away.   any advice.?   

I dont use any praise "good girl" etc, to encourage her when she is showing this avoidance behaviour.    Is this a sign of her becoming  timid?

Food
Try feeding her when putting away.
Has she always done this?
Bit like teaching a dog to stay if it moves take it back to where u said stay.
Don't give up if u said kennel that's where it's too going.
If she runs off .
Do not follow crouch down and stay quiet she should come to u
  

Taking the gun for a walk, oh yeah

Also she might be getting cold in the kennel.

You definitely don't want her to be afraid of her kennel, as its her place. She needs to be keen to go in. As stated feed her in or beside the kennel. As for rolling over she is completely submitting to you. You need to bring the happy to come to you out of her even if you have to get down on your hands and knees and make it like a play time with her. If she has a favorite toy use that to get her in the kennel but don't leave it with her. Favorite toys are for rewarding. Be patient and stay calm, losing it will make it worse.

reinforce the recall, step away from the kennel and call her in, the kennel should not be the issue, regardless of the reluctance to be put away it is the recall you need her to correct.....don't play silly buggas, take a step back and work on the recall Wink

Thanks for the advice.

Shes pretty cute and knows the exact situation that its time to go back in.

shes generally pretty good, but she 
will stop sit  and then slowly roll over.

Fed in  or at the kennel.    she's in in a flash Smiley


re call at a distance is good,  very good when shes hunting/walking  she has a sharp 180 turn command.

but mid range when distracted..  Lips Sealed

Pretty cold down your way.. as someone said. I had similar up here and found the bedding was wet. The terrier must of had a wee accident.

Could be, thats she's got used to the high life.  Loves a wee adventure in the truck, im sure that the heater is all part of the fun.  Cheesy

Kawhia,  if she rolls I'll get hold of her collar and bring her back to her feet, she will then, usually walk in.  Sometimes she'll via off at the last minute. and reapeat the roll to her back.

Extra pats when she goes inside of her own accord.  Smiley

and yes it is cold!   Brrr!! Cool
