Whoops...She (Many apologies Rocky).Thank you so much! This information is beyond helpful. Now that I have my front door enclosure, I think I will leave it open as part of the training. When Rocky feels comfortable, she will be able to enter and exit as she pleases.
There's another benefit to the playpen because when I visit my parent's house, I will take it with us and she will feel somewhat at home. I had her sleep in it as well so it wont be too much.
Again, I thank you for this because the cardboard tip is something I would never have thought of!
Sounds like the two of you are going to do just great.
Playpen sounds a great idea for travel....hmmmm maybe pinch that idea
