    There are a ton of other movies that I really enjoy, but I really can't say which is #2 on my all time list.

    I've been thinking a lot about this lately. I have to agree with what your trainer said, but with a caveat (at least in my, admittedly not professional, opinion):

    I would agree 100% that when...

    I agree with the dividing crate thing. We did that for Gir when she was a pup. We got a large crate, and as she grew, moved the divider. That prevented any accidents in her crate while we were away.
