Crate training going very badly.

So I got Luna Thrusday and she hated the crate that night and the next. Out of the dogs I have had she is the longest one that whines in the crate. Ignoring her isn't possible. She makes some god awful sounds.

I now put her in the same crate as my golden, crate is more then big enough for both of them. She whines like a cat, i am going to try my best to ignore her for a bit and see if she settles down but she can go for at least 30 mins easy.

Your pup or dog will get used to the crate is she has a crate of her own and is roomy. Crating two dogs in one crate is very dangerous. On Craigslist you may be able to find a large crate for your pup or dog. During the night we had a crate next to our bed the first few weeks and that helped max settle down as a pup. We had another crate in the kitchen. This worked there are a lot of crate training games on the internet. You want to make the crate fun and always bring the pup out of the crate when the pup or dog is quiet and calm - rewarding the calm behavior.

Currently the crate is in the living room with me, Thursday night it was in the room with me. I got no sleep thrusday so the wife took the puppy shift last night because I had a massive migraine, I was feeling nauseous and felt like I was overheating. I wanted to see if the crate being bigger would settle her it didn't. Currently she is sleeping with my golden at my feet if I move she gets up. I still need to moew the yard LOL, if I crate her she freak she will make a sound like a mad cat, then I can hear her panting very loudly. When she was quite I did give her a treat but she got up and started her whining routine. I had to take her out of the crate because the sounds she was making honest to God freaked me out. The other thing is she will he going to work with me so I need her to he relaxed in the crate. I want to do some tough love but I am worried she will poop and pee in the crate. My other dogs whined for a few mins and then went to bed she will go solid for 30 to 45mins, clawing and just generally freaking out. It is almost like separation anxiety but I feel she is to young for that.

I found it helped tremendously when I had an extra crate next to the bed at night I would put my hand on top of the crate it helped max settle into the crate and with new his new family. First night we slept downstairs with him being in the crate, second night he slept in our bed and the third night I finally figured it all out and put one crate near our bed and had another crate in the kitchen. Followed similar crate training games I posted and this helped he whined about 1/2 day In his crate that was in the kitchen during the day. We often let him potty during the night and he did his business right away - and settled in right away for a few weeks and he never once had accident in his crate.
Crate- let out to potty then play or train then potty then crate. A way of life for quiet a time. Everytime he went back in crate he had a good treat to keep him busy and he was fed his meal and water in the crate and meals and water removed out of crate when he finished his breakfast and dinner. Again so important to only let pup out of crate when pup is calm if you let your pup out of crate when whining and crying you are teaching your pup that that kind of behavior is what will let her out of the crate.

No, jenny i 100% agree with you about clam and let them out but Luna will whine for a VERY long time and if i say her name she will be quite for a little bit if i move towards her she will be quite but if i do nothing else she is back at it with the epic whinging. i just got done doing some basic training sit, down, treats in the crate i do feed hr in her crate right now. I mean this currently is the struggle she will actually whine if she out of the crate and needs to go potty, never had a dog do that normally i need to train them for that. she is mouthy but then again she is a puppy i except that. the crate training is the hurdle of the week
