I bought a new puppy from a breeder that lives about an hour away. He's always kept his puppies in a barn, and they've never been apart, or ever been in a crate. She's a 11 week old Keeshond puppy.
We bought her a large crate, and divided it in two with a divider. She has two toys in there, and two towels down. We left her in there for an hour while we went out, and she worked herself up to be sick (she threw up), and was whining the whole time.
Then bed time came last night, and we put her crate in my room, and she wouldn't stop barking and whining. I had to let her out, and she slept on my floor with me (completely silent). We need to crate train her, and hopefully keep her happy while in there.
Can someone give me advice on how to crate train this pup?
