Hi, I have an 11 week old poodle pup who is absolutely fine going in his crate at night (downstairs in the living room) and sleeps until around 8am. When we go out I put him in his crate (just while he's so little), he cries a little when we go out and then settles down and is fine when we get back. But if I go upstairs and shut the baby gate he cries and cries and cries...same if he's in his crate. If he knows I'm in the house he just cries to be next to me. I work in my office upstairs and he sits under my desk but I need to train him that he can't always be next to me. So when I leave him downstairs and he cries and cries I just ignore him. I can't do the 'go back down when he stops'....as he doesn't stop! Can anyone advise on what to do?
