I bought a huge crate for my tiny puppy and I think that was a bad approach. She's fine now... but she screamed so much at first I ended up sleeping on the floor with her for almost 2 full weeks. Until I could barely walk from the back pain.... And then when I would try to sleep on the couch or bed she goes nuts and Growls and bites me. It doesn't feel playful but I could be overreacting. Long story short we rearranged our bedroom so her crate is right next to the bed and it took 3 nights of crying and now she sleeps fine. I did cover it partially with a sheet. That seems to help her feel secure since I went with the wire crate.
