I am new to the forum. My husband and I have a new boxer puppy. Her name is Tawny and she is 10 weeks. She is a cuddle bug and doesn't like to be alone. So of course when I put her in her crate she goes histerical. Non stop crying and screaming like someone is pulling her legs off. I have treated her with hot dogs when she goes in, I have sat next to the crate, I have walked away from the crate, I have left the house, I have left her in for a few minutes, I have left her in for a couple hours.I don't force her in. She will enter on her own for the hot dogs. I have tried everything I have read on the internet and nothing is working. I have been sleeping with her since I can't listen to it all night since I already listen to the screaming during the day. I'm sorry to say I did try the bark collar once and the was very sad. They say they get the hang of it with the bark collar but I don't think I could do that again. Can anybody help me??? We will all be happier if we can figure this out. I have had her for a couple weeks and it seems like she should be comfortable in her "den" by now. Heeeelp!
