Iv been asked today if i will foster a 10wk old labradoodle when my current charge leaves us in 2-3wks. I have just got a couple of questions about crate training which i apologise if they have been answered before. I have a crate which is quite large as I bought it for my current charge who is a 1yr old lab to replace his smaller one. Will the new pup be ok in such a large crate or should i get a smaller one so she feels more secure? Also, all I'v read about crate training talks about introducing it gradually which I am more than happy to do and have time to do. However, how do you go about the first couple of nights? She wouldn't have had time to become adjusted to it before the first night and she will be in the crate to prevent her messing in my bedroom. Surely shutting her in overnight ruins the gradual adjustment process.
