Yeah, I just got my dog this week. he's 7 months old and luckily was already crate trained. However if he really doesn't want to be in it, he knows how to get out so just today before I went to work I clipped my own human choker that I don't wear cause it's partially broken around the lock to keep him from barking at my dad. Dad let him out a little later though I think.
That is some dog to be able to do that, maybe you ought to see if you can get the manufacture to replace it or something.
Frankly, I wouldn't trust a dog to roam the house if he/she is new to the house. After a while sure. I've actually closed him in my room when I go out for an hour or so since he likes my room and he hasn't destroyed anything. I mostly use the crate when I sleep. I think it's an early thing really when pup's beds are inside of them?
