howling at night in crate

We've had our new GSD puppy for 4 nights and she is doing great at everything but continues to howl at night when she is in her crate.


In the past when I've crate trained our puppies it has only taken a couple of nights maximum for them to sort themselves out and be happy but this little lady has a good set of lungs on her


I've not done any different to previously but any idea on what else I could try to make her more comfortable and not have the anxiety at night time. She's curled up in her crate now with the door open asleep so it's not as if she is afraid of going in etc.

Maybe put the crate in your bedroom where she can see you for a few nights until she gets used to it which she will if you persevere.

Thought of doing that but didn't want her to get used to being in the bedroom but need poor girl to settle. And me get some sleep too

Thanks

Could it be that she gets upset only when it's locked?
