I have a 14 week mini golden retriever (25% cocker 75% golden retriever) who was crate trained (walked in it when she was ready to go to bed and didn't cry when we shut the door or put her back in it after letting her out in the middle of the night to go potty. However, this week she began to not want to go in the crate and will bark for 30-45 minutes after being put in the crate. We still have the same routine and she gets her kong with peanut butter... But once she is done with the kong the crying begins. We have other dogs who are older and do not sleep in crates and are in the room sleeping with us. Is that what is upseting her or is it somethig else?
My other dog does that whenever she's in a crate and I bring out my other dog. Does she bark when the other dogs are inside the room with her? Or does she only bark when she's alone in the room without the other dogs and you guys? That's what my other dog does when she's in the crate. But she only whines and barks for around 10 or so minutes before stopping. Other than that, she doesn't bark or whine at all when my other dog is in the same room with her even when I leave the room for a while.
