So. Merlin is just over 9 weeks, and I was trying to slowly introduce him to the crate over the last two weeks with treats, but he needs to start being in there overnight so I can separate him from his mother.

Any tips to get him to quiet down? I figured after 15 minutes he might fall asleep, but that is not the case...

Before you get on me about taking a puppy home before 8 weeks, you should know that he was born in my room, and I own both his mother and father.

I have never crate trained a puppy before...

Has anyone ever heard a GSD pup howl?
It must be the bit of husky coming out.
It's a good thing I don't work until 3pm tomorrow.

What do you do with your puppy at night if he/she isn't crate trained yet?
If you are slowly introducing the crate, do you just confine them to a single room until they are ready to stay in there all night?

My puppy is about 15 weeks old and stays in the crate whenever I can not watch every move he makes. Sleep in the crate as well. I put the crate in my room so I can be near him when he is sleeping. The puppy will quite down in time. If my puppy starts getting noisy it typically means he has to potty.
