pray for me. we have had our eskie puppy for 3 nights and he goes fucking insane in his crate. he has been screaming/howling/crying/whining/biting the metal for the last half hour after i got up to let him out. i keep waiting for even a moment of quiet to praise him, but he has been full on psycho mode all 3 days and nights. we started giving him his meals in the open crate this morning and he would go in and eat without problem, but he loses his mind as soon as you close the door. we have a fitted cover for the crate but he doesnt seem to care. i'm thinking of trying one of those soothing heartbeat sound solutions. it has to be hard to be away from his mom/litter mates. he goes nuts whether he can see us or not, so not sure how helpful putting the crate in our bedroom would be. we're just reminding ourselves he's only an 8 week old pup and will get better. relying on earplugs tonight and reading through this thread to feel everyone else's pain.
