Thanks I think the first night went rather well. She cried a lot for the first hour and then I went to bed. At 2 am I checked and she was asleep in her kennel. She woke up, though when I came to check on her so I praised her for sleeping in her kennel and put her near it and she hopped back in and I treated her. I left a few treats in her kennel but she came to her door and cried when I left. The treats were there for when she went back to lay in the kennel. I think she did that about 2:30 because her cries got quiet or stopped so I could not hear them. She was crying this morning. But she had pooped and peed several times on the newspaper outside of her litterbox so that is encouraging. This morning I removed most of the wood pellets and moved some of the soiled newspaper into the box with just a bit of litter scattered around. I cleaned the floor with bleach where the newspapers were and put down fresh. Hoping she chooses to go in the litterbox where it smells right
Bottom line- she did not sleep in our bed and she did not poop in her kennel. Yay! I also held her belly up til she stopped squirming and looked away this morning and gave her lots of praise. Going to work with her on crate training today. Phew that was a lot to write so I am going to copy this to her diary so I don't have to write it again lol.
