Question by 311csu: My dog hurts its snout trying hard to escape crate when i am at work. Ideas on how to safely keep dog crated?
My new dog (4 years old medium sized) will break out of the crate by unhooking the metal latch. It is a very smart dog. When it does get out, it will destroy the house. Does anyone know what I can do to keep it in the crate without it hurting itself to get out. Is there a better crate out there that will fit the description i am dealing with?

Get a clip to keep it closed and put somthing heavy in front of it to prevent him from pushing the door open.

I would agree that possibly getting another latch to keep it safely fastened may be a good idea, but also I think you need to work on making the crate a more positive place for your furry friend. I would recommend checking out Susan Garrett’s Say Yes! Dog Training tips for crate training. She has crate games that you can play with your dog that will not only make the crate a more positive place for your dog, but they also help to build more focus and motivation, as well as, a more dependable sit, stay, and recall.
Also, in order to get my girl to like the crate, I would stuff a Kong w/ kibble and slather a little peanut butter around the edges, and when I would tell her to get in the crate she would run at a high rate of speed because she knew yummy treats would be coming to her. This also gives the dogs something to do at least for the first few minutes you are gone. I think that the first thing you should do though is definitely try to make the crate a more positive place for your friend.
Plastic airline crate, drive two holes, one on top and one on the bottom of the door, right on the plastic and stick a rod through it. The rod stays in front of the door and prevents it from opening. Alternatively, you could get an aluminum crate, they are malinois proof and nothing will escape one..
Get one with two latches. The one I have from Wal Mart has sufficed quite well for my full grown Rotty.
