Crates are an often debated method of training your puppy/dog. We have found that many people abuse the length of time or motivation for using this tool. Storm is a victim of such training.
As a result of poor training in the beginning, it also created physical as well as psychological problems. Storm has been around a good part of the Eastern seaboard. He started out in Georgia and was kept in a crate ALL OF THE TIME. As a result, it damaged his growth and some of this tendons. According to veterinarians, he had severe dysplasia which was manmade, not genetic. He was afraid to come out of his crate and would creep up to his waterbowl or his food, quickly eat some and go back in. Because of his great personality, he was moved to Boston, Mass., … then Florida .. then Maryland.
When he arrived in Maryland, a contact was made with Tinton Falls General Manager, Bruce Sanchez who has taken Storm to foster. Storm is losing muscle mass and is supposed to be walked ½ hour twice a day. If you would like to adopt Storm, please call our Tinton Falls facility at 732-922-0100 for more information.
