I would definately not use


I would definately not use her crate as punishment. Especially if you use it for kenneling her when you are not home. She will begin to associate it with a bad place.

As far as what to do, I am unsure as to what to exactly suggest. Your best bet is to try and predict her behavior, and before she lunges put a stop to it before it happens. I’m sorry I cannot be more help.
