Crate whining

December 17, 2020, 11:42 PM
Q: I'm at a bit of a loss with my puppy and her crate. She has a puppypoopalace because I was told that's what she was used to (from Premier Pups) but she shows absolutely zero interest in it. She's 9 weeks old (cavapoo) and I got her on Sunday. She's been sleeping in my bed every night because the crying in the crate is unbearable. I tried to put her in the crate today for 30 minute increments of time but she shrieks. She had her favorite toys, a snuggle puppy with the heartbeat and a heat pack. I even gave her a kong stuffed with hot dog. What am I missing? I even tried to feed her in the crate but she has no interest in anything other than crying. Is she too young?
A: As long as you create other options she will likely choose those.  You must walk away and not go back unless she has been quiet at least 30 minutes.
