I've just got a 6week old pup, Last night was the first night he's spent alone in his life. I literally got him from the liter last night. I noticed he would wander around the house, and as long as he knew I was near he was fine. As soon as I put him in his crate for the night, started crying. I thought about covering the crate but was afraid he would get to hot. Have you seen any problems with the dog and getting hot while the crate is covered? He is in a spare bedroom to himself, so with the door shut he can't see me anyway. He probably cried for about 45minutes before i put a small radio in the room with him. Seem he likes Diana Krall. That being said. Is the radio idea a good one? or does it still lead to bad habits?
