Bandit is 13 weeks old, we brought him home 7 days ago. We introduced him to the crate (door open) loved going inside laying down and playing with his toys. We started crate training, door closed this has not been a good thing. We started out with just a few minutes up to 15-30 minutes. He cried, yelped, barked and scratched even when he could see me in sight. I said nothing, did not even look his way and continued whatever I was doing. I had to work on Tuesday but only left him in the crate for 2 hours. When I came home he had knocked over his treat dish and his pad was all folded over and he was panting and crying. Yesterday I went to work, left him in the crate for 3 hours. I came home he had chewed the corner of his pad and was panting and crying. Today I pretended to leave, but went down to my basement office to listen to what happens when I am gone.....it sounded like he was throwing himself at the door, crying, barking and howling, this went on for an hour before I went upstairs. I have done everything exactly by the book. Anyone out there that has had similar problems?
