My staffy is nearly 2...he has a crate for when we are out & at night. Recently I was told by a breeder to move his crate as he's got domineering over it & was barking & going for us while he's in it. So we moved it & he's got worse, we put him in the crate when people come to the house & gradually let him out when he's calmed down to say hello. I'm really worried about his behaviour when he's in the crate now, he's bit me & my husband while he's been in it

Staffies don't respond well to crates. They suffer from seperation anxiety and are naturally very sociable dogs who crave human affection. I have a ten year old staffie bitch and I never needed to use a crate. She has a basket and she's locked in the kitchen at night or when we go out and she's always been fine. I would remove the crate completely. Your dog obviously hasn't responded well to it. You need to train your staffie to return to their basket if they are getting over fussy with guests.

You need to develop a relationship with your dog. He or she needs love as well as training. You to need to be trained in how to teach your dog. Take the time with him or her. It is your friend a good friend treat your dog as so. ith love and time he or she will change. How would you act if someone would lock you up and you not know why ... Think about it yourself
