Dog afraid of crate after traumatic incident
My dog sleeps at night in a crate w/no problems for last 4 yrs. He always loved his den and goes in by himself when we are ready to go to bed.
Moved into new house- first night curtains & rod fell down onto den. we didn't hear it so he was trapped all night.. By morning when we let him out he was beyond freaked out and now won't go in his den.
We've tried re-training him with treats. he won't even go near it.. forced him into it last week, COMPLETELY freaked out so i let him out after 10 minutes. Tried getting him new den but he won't go near it even with treats. None of us are sleeping at night. How can i get him to not be afraid of his den and get him back in for nighttime sleeping?
Thanks for your help.
