I have a 4 year old lab that does not like to get into a dog blind / Mutt Hut. She is not fond of her kennel either and maybe a little spoiled. Any suggestions on how to get her more comfortable with getting her in???

put treats in it and make it a game for her. slowly extend how long she stays in it.

I use the kennel/crate command to get my dogs their blind. They were crate trained but only regularly use there crates in the truck.

not familiar with the mutt hutt, but you might be better off using a blind that is open on both ends. i didn't train my ist lab when she was a pup to use a blind. when she got older i bought a blind and she wouldn't go in it. i tried everything ,i ended up selling it and bought a camo jacket for her to lay beside my blind.

soon as i brought my new pup home i bought a blind and she is good to go. good luck

my dog likes both end open to. i just got lucky i set it up in the house for the fist time and said in girl here they come and she hid. we were good to go from that point on. Sometimes i will play with her and use the blind and tell her to hide it helps her think its a good place fun .Lots of praise and a little treat sometimes wont hurt. fifteen min a day end on a good task always keep it fun.
