Question Training Issues

So i'm having crate training issues with Jazz. Everytime she goes in the crate she starts crying her little head off. I would let just cry it out but the problem is she gets loud and we live in an apartment so can't. So how do I get her to the point that she doesn't cry when put in the crate.

When Crackers was little he would do that, we ended up having to cover his crate with a blanket to stop him.

Covering the crate only helps for a bit and usually only at night... If she was just more reliable with peeing on the pee pads we wouldn't have to crate her.

I do that with Angel sometimes.

When you put her in her crate, it should be a good experience. Maybe put a toy in there with her. Are you in the same room as her when she is in her crate? Experiment with leaving the room for a short time and when she is quiet, come back into the room. And repeat this until she is quiet for longer periods of time.

It is very hard because they are so small and look so helpless!! (sigh) But don't let their innocent look fool you!

I wish I could offer more advice. We got Angel at 9 weeks old from a couple in Taunton that was just selling 2 pups their dogs had. He took to his crate, it's really a carrier, immediately. He cried for 15 minutes the first two nights and no more. He is 2 years old now, so he doesn't spend a whole lot of time in it except for bed time at night and when we travel in the car or when he just wants to go in on his own!!

Good luck!

Here is what I did last week... I've covered the sides with some cloths and stuffed the create with her most loved toys and some small blankets (sheets) that she used to sleep with. At first i lure her in with some treats and keep the door open. I keep on giving her treats while shes inside the crate every 5 secs, may be lesser and keep on increasing the time between the treats.

Angel1210: I'm in Mass too, what a coincidence
I have school so I only really have the weekend to train but I will try that this weekend and hope for the best. She is good with the crate at night but it's in the morning (when I have to leave for the bus) that she whines the most

hmingtea: I can't really do the treat method as she is fed raw and I don't have any raw treats for her yet :'( or else that would have been what I would have done. I tried covering the crate but that doesn't seem to work and I make sure she has her favorite teddy in their with her but that doesn't seem to help either.

I'm having the same problem only just in the car, no matter how often she whines for hours
