Crate Training Your Dog from The Bark Buzz

Did you just get a new puppy who is learning the rules of the house? Maybe your dog has behavioral problems, such as chewing on shoes or furniture. Or maybe you just want an easier way to travel with your dog. If you’re in any of these situations, crate training your dog might be the best option.

Crate training can be a controversial topic, but if we look at how dogs live in the wild, we realize it is a natural method to keep your dog comfortable and calm. Dogs are naturally den animals, which means that they feel comfortable in a small area they consider safe. A crate can simulate that for your dog.

A couple of other things to consider:
Never use a crate as a form of punishment.
Pay attention to your dog’s reaction to the crate- some dogs are more averse to crates, especially rescue dogs or any dog that spent a lot of time in a cage as a puppy.
Make sure you choose a crate that is properly sized for your dog. You can buy a larger crate that your dog can grow into, just block off a section of it until your dog grows.

Below you will find a guide to crate training your dog the proper way. As with any type of training, never force your dog to do anything they are visibly uncomfortable with. Treat this as another way to bond with your dog!

We recently saw some irresistible looking caramel cupcakes on the @buttermeup.cakes Instagram account and we’ve been craving them ever since. So to celebrate #NationalCaramelDay we asked the owner and chief baker Holly Taylor for her secret recipe, see below:

12744242_10156542831375722_3382474772178303415_n

Recipe:

115g self raising flour
115g caster sugar
2 eggs
115g butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
Jar of Salted caramel sauce

1 tbsp Milk

Buttercream
250g of unsalted butter
500g of icing sugar
1 tsp of vanilla essence
2 tbsp of salted caramel

Caramac bar for decoration
Drizzle caramel on top!

Method:

Cream butter and sugar in bowl
Then add vanilla essence
Then whisk eggs in small bowl
Add the eggs in gradually, with tablespoon of flour as you go to prevent the mix from curdling
After you’ve added all the eggs, put in the remaining flour and finally a tbsp of milk.
Then spoon into cupcake cases!
