Hey everyone. I brought home my 8 week old GSD pup 4 days ago. Crate training has been a bit rough going so far. She screams like a banshee every time I put her in there (I lure her in with treats and say "go kennel"). She will settle in after a while but my question is concerning when I let her out. When I know she has to go to the bathroom, and I hear a break in the crying for a few minutes, I know it's the right time. However, as soon as I walk in the room, she starts whining frantically again. Should I let her out when she does this, or am I rewarding that hyper anxious state of mind? I don't make eye contact when I open the crate, or speak to her.
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.
