German shepherds like to be with their family. We got our boy at 9 weeks last week and his kennel is right next to our bed, he cries for 10 minutes tops. I know it's not where you want the dog to be but your pup is a baby, these initial weeks are crucial for developing a good bond and for him to learn acceptable behavior. The last thing you want is a bored pup who gets destructive and unruly.
