    Me and Bella (13 week old Lab x) are moving in a couple of weeks into a house with 3 other adults (family members).
    Currently she has her own room which is completely puppy proofed so I can leave her crate door open and she is free to wander and sleep where she pleases in this room.
    When we move she will have to stay in her crate with the door shut for up to 4 hours some days. Is this ok? She hates having the crate door shut - she howls and yelps until someone lets her out (I have left her for 30 mins before hoping she would calm down but never did) What can I do?
    She can sleep in my bedroom at night but when there isn't anyone in the house she will have to be put in the crate as there are too many temptations around for a little pup!

    Help please! Are there any alternatives to the crate? Just got her settled in to a routine and now I feel like i have to start again :(
