Hi all, As a first time dog owner, I am constantly panicking if I’m doing the right thing with our pup, and the biggest worry of all is that if I’m using the crate correctly. When first in the crate we didn’t use the training methods of leaving him short periods of times and coming back then repeat. We made his crate as comfortable as possible with a few of his toys and give him a treat when we put him in. The first night he cried for around 25/30 mins and then was fine for the night, and every night since (we’ve had him for nearly a week) has got better and better down to the point where he does a slight cry for maybe a minute of so, and doesn’t cry at all at night as we get up to take him out for the toilet at 1am & 4.30am. Could someone tell me if what we are doing is ok? It’s worth mentioning that he does try and come out of the crate when we put him in so we just have to try and close the door quickly. Any comments would be really appreciated! Thanks!
