Our expert says:
I suggest you make a game of going in and out of the dog house. Use treats "yummy ones". Take a treat, give it to the dog, throw one in the kennel in view of the entrance. When one dog goes in, make a huge fuss. Do not try and force them in there, it will give them reason to be affraid of the kennel and do not get angry with them. If they do not want to sleep in it, it might be too hot for them at this moment. If they choose to sleep on the mat, let them be. If your kennel is large enough for them and no negative association has been made with the kennel, they should have no problem going in when necessary.
