We just brought home a 10 week old German Shepherd puppy. He does not like being in his crate and neighbors have told us that they can hear him barking from their apartments. The first night the cops were called to our house. He is getting a little bit better. I put a clock in there to mimic his mothers heart beat and I also cover the crate and play soft music. I reassure him that I am next to him in the bed. When he is not in the crate, he is sleeping by our feet or following us around. I have never had a shepherd before. I also have a harness on him when we are outside and when he doesn't want to be out, he runs to the door and always tries to back out of the harness. I feel like he is not going to the bathroom as much as a puppy should. The past 2 days he has been going in the house. I will take him out for almost an hour and he will not go, I bring him in and he goes. Today luckily he has gone outside everytime. Does anyone have any tips to limit barking? I'm afraid our neighbors will call the cops again, I know it can be annoying but I don't know what else I can do until he is comfortable.
