Crate Games (DVD) uses a dog crate as the basis to teach obedience, drive, positive owner-dog relationships, and most of all, how to have fun while training your dog.

As a pet owner of Labradors for years, I've always allowed their unruly behavior to fall under the blanket term `labs will be labs'.
With my new out of control puppy I knew I would need more structure in our doggy life if I expected him to interact appropriately with my grandchildren, older dog, friends, neighbors, mailman, etc.
This DVD was suggested to me by a friend who owns very successful and competitive sport dogs. It was not to long (85 minutes), easy to follow, and the games were a fun way to build a real relationship with my 10 month old pup and channel all his energy into daily focus and self control. Playing crate games has become a part of our daily routine as much as our walks are and having a well behaved easy to work with dog has become a big part of my life.
I love the bond I've created with my dog and his eagerness to please me! I would recommend this DVD to anyone interested in an easy way to create focus in their dog whether it is for sports or every day family life.

This DVD was recommended to me years ago, and I was hesitant to watch it. It's been on my BowWowFlix queue for months, and I kept pushing it back because I didn't think it would really help my dog at all with our training issues. My dog is fine with being in a crate, so I didn't understand why it kept getting recommended to me. It just didn't seem relevant. I finally ended up getting the DVD, and I'm SO glad I watched it. It really helps wonders with motivation. My dog is training in agility, and he can often be unmotivated and unfocused, so I've been doing lots of reading and DVD watching to look for ways to help with our issues. Normally, when we practice agility in our backyard, my dog gets bored and distracted after only about 5 minutes (or less). We started incorporating crate games into agility 3 days ago, and have had amazing training sessions since. When I put crates around, he amazingly can be focused, motivated, and running fast and enthusiastically for 30 minutes straight. What a change! My dog used to find jumps boring, and we've been practicing jump sequences lately (which didn't help his lack of enthusiasm for them). Before crate games, he would do a couple sequences and then be over it and just wander around sniffing and ignoring me. When I incorporated 2 crates into jump drills, all of a sudden he loves jump drills! Getting to run crate to crate is somehow so much fun for a dog, and he absolutely loves it. I highly recommend crate games for any dog that needs motivation for any type of training (not just agility.)

If I had known that my dogs could learn to enjoy being inside a crate, I'd have bought this DVD years ago! We had so much fun with the games Susan Garrett recommends. Not only is this a learning experience, but truly a bonding one, lots of play involved. My dogs love the interaction and eagerly run into their crates to start the games. Highly recommend.

Update 2-2013: Where I once thought crates were scary little prisons, my opinion has completely reversed itself. Because of this training, my three dogs now love their crates and seek them out as their most favored place to nap. I am blown away!

Pros: I would give this video five stars for originality. What a great idea!!! I've only begun, but its working already and we are having fun while playing a game. I am totally on board with her methodology - reward the behavior you want. Be consistent. And remember, it's a game. When I started, my little girl didn't take to it like I thought she would. I got a little frustrated so I stopped and re-watched the video. That's when I remembered it's a game - have fun. The next round was fun and games, and progress. Now she's in and out just like the video.

Cons: The production could be more polished, but it doesn't need to be (and that would increase cost).

Bottom line: If this sounds like something you and your dog will enjoy together, buy it. You'll be glad you did!

Easy to follow along and very informative. We got this DVD b'cuz i have never really believed a crate was necessary, but when we took an obedience class that required crating our dog i needed to get one. I was wrong when i thought we didn't need a crate. Our dog loves it! At home we keep the door open and our dog sleeps in it,,, stores his toys in it instead of burring them in the yard,,, and he hides from thunderstorms in it. IT's HIS DEN. In retrospect, I'm glad we have a crate and I'm glad we got this DVD to motivate our dog to use it,

Great video for training your dog to have manners. Easy to follow, good instructions. I think every dog should have these skills whether they compete in agility or not. Perfect for introducing your dog to the crate.

I'm still evaluating the benefit of this game. Only part way through the sessions but anything you do to interact with your dog adds what Susan calls value to you. I had never given that concept much thought until I enrolled in Susan's Recallers. I'm still working through all the games and find the value the dog sees in me growing and growing and really helping with my training in IPO. BTW, I've been training and showing dogs for 40+ years and am still always hungry for ideas. Susan's are super.
