Thank you both for your input. It is good to know the pup will associate her behaviour of being remove from the pack as the punishment and not the crate. I have put into practise the phrase 2 “leave it” command using her leash with a gentle pop and redirecting her back to me with a “Come” command to a kong toy with food. It works beautifully and as I’m already doing phrase 1 seem to be the best way to proceed with her. What I’ve realising is if I’m going to use the “no” to stop behaviours I don’t want – then use it with the command schedule that gives her alternative behaviour for her to do. Good advice…. much appreciated.
