    my dalmation labrador x is 12 weeks old during the night he was in his crete in the living room, we have now moved him into our other dog's room (rottie doberman x 3yrs old) still in his crete at night, and he wont stop crying all night!! we've been ignoring him as felt he would settle ut it's now been a week and ive had little sleep. we did take him out back in the middle of the night just to make sure it wasnt that he needed to go to the toilet (he did go) but then continued to cry! we're off to buy a new bed for him to see if that helps but im concerned about leaving him out of his crete as he loves to eat everything in sight!

    any suggetstions?

    definately do NOT give up the crate training, you must nearly be there. a week is a long time, usually it should only take 3-5 days so keep it up. he wil eventually settle. i know its hard, i have bulldogs and both are crate trained, if they werent they would chew everything! do you crate him when you go to shops etc?

    yep i agree with the other post dont give up
    and do carry on ignoring him otherwise hell learn if i cry you come down
    you could try the water bottle
    fill up a bottle and when he starts come down dont say a thing and squeeze some on him then walk off
    sounds bad but it not.
    good luck

    yes i do put him in the crete when we go out.
    our thoughts were that he wants to be with our other dog but cant get to him as they lay together in the evenings on their cushions in our living room.
    we've now got him his own bed and are going to leave his crete open for him to use as a toilet during the night fingers crossed this works!
