I have a 6 month old Boxer pup who has been sleeping on my bed for about the past 2 months. He has grown so fast and it is becoming a problem. About the first 4 months when he was a very young puppy I had him sleeping in a crate every night and I only let him start sleeping with me because he outgrew his puppy crate. So yesterday i went and bought him a full sized crate and put it in the living room all day with the door open allowing him to check it out and stuff throughout the day. I had him eat a few meals in the crate with the door open and gave him a bully stick in there to try and help him like the crate. Night came around and i moved the crate right next to my bed so he wouldn’t feel separated from me. From the moment I put him in there he began to whine. The whining then became barking and he was not going to stop. I allowed him to whine and bark for about 15-20 minutes to see if he would wear himself out and he didn’t. Then i laid down on the floor next to the crate to see if he would lay down and he did and fell asleep for about 1 minute. Next thing you know he is up and barking again. I eventually had to let him in my bed because he was keeping my whole family up. What can i do to get him to stop barking? I know the more I let him sleep on my bed the harder it will be to break him from it so i want to nip this problem as quick as possible. Thanks!
