wow i wish i could help you....My Layla will go in her crate and be perfectly content....Chance on the other hand....did exactly what Allie does...and still does. Chance will not quit...ever. He gets so bad he literally slams himself back and forth from side to side in his crate. So i either have to leave him out or take him with me. He will however sleep in his crate but my hand has to be in the crate until he is totally asleep. I wish you luck and if you figure it out please help me....lol I am just afraid Chance is going to get hurt doing what he does. Plus i am afraid people are gonna think he is getting killed in my house when i am not home. I feel your pain...it is miserable when you cant get them to go in their crate. I really do wish i could help you but i am at a loss myself. Good luck!!!
