Hi I am thinking about sending my female who is 17 months old out to be trained for three weeks. My problem is she is not crate trained and she will be living with the family in there home and will be crated. Do you think it would hurt her spirit, her over all personality? She has never been in a crate and we have had her since she was 5 weeks old. I have two other males who are crate trained I just didnt want her to be crated. She has the run of the house with the four cats and sleeps in bed with me and my husband. My other concern is she will be gone for three weeks and I dont want her to think I abandon her. What is anyones feelings on this? Thanks for your input.
