I bought a crate for my 11 week old puppy but he won't sleep in it during the day and i discovered last night after a bit of spying, that he never actually sleeps in it a night either I guess it's my fault as i have never shut the door (didn't want to) so he's been freedom to do as he wanted
I never used one before, only ever bought a lovely basket and away we go ......
anyway i took him a walk this morning and then placed him in it with a treat, closed the door and left the room to go and do some chores. He barked on and off for about 10 mins and then went quiet.....i got on with a few things before returning to him after an hour...let him out and gave him lots of praise
Im going to have to do this from now on i think....tonight may be a little fraught and i will have to set my alarm to come down during the night for a couple of comfort breaks Lol.....
I've never found puppyhood so difficult before but hey..........(don't suppose it helps that im menopausal either Pml)
