    Our MinPin, Caki, was crate trained from the time we brought him home, this not only helped house break him quickly but also set the state for his sleeping habits. Although we conditioned him to be a loving dog, my husband has insisted on the pack order from the beginning. We read a lot about this breed before we brought Caki home. He is a very strong willed guy, but, he is also obedient, thanks to my husband. Caki prefers his own bed and crate, as a matter of fact he tells us at night when he is ready to bed; we simply ask him, ‘Caki, bed and biscuit?’ and he responds with a bark and runs to his crate. When we take him on vacation we bring his bed and crate and allow him to get in bed with us if he wants. He eventually ends up in his crate of his own choosing!

    Hi DiDi, that sounds great. Ours wasn’t trained when we got him, and we let him sleep in our bed. He’s there to stay now… we should have been more strict from the start, but oh well. We love him so.

    My minpin Neo is 3 1/2 now. He never comes on the bed but sleeps in his crate with the crate door open all night. Only comes out when he hears me wake.

    The secret was using crate training from day one. I always put him in a crate in the car and still shut him in his ‘kitchen’ crate for 10 mins every now and then.

    From this training, he never hovers round the table at meal times 🙂
