I've had quite a few similiar experiances with Harley with confinement. He absolutely cannot stand being in his crate at night. We tried it several times, but he just stayed up the entire night...not to mention keeping everyone else up at night too. :tongue: So I resorted to letting him sleep with me at night but during the day when we're out, he stays in his crate and falls asleep. I usually will keep the T.V. on, most likely animal planet. LOL! :wink: If not, I put the radio on, I try to find a soft jazz station, just because I feel like it's soothing. When I'm eating dinner or getting ready for camp in the morning I will put Harley in his playpen, but he has jumped out but I think he feels more secure when he sees me there. I personally wouldn't let her have the run of the kitchen, it seems like there would be so much puppies would be able to get into, especially tiny puppies like chihuahuas, but obviously you know your kitchen better than me. So if you feel that it's "puppy proofed" enough, then trying to put a baby gate up may work. Also, try putting a large stuffed animal where she sleeps, I also put lots of blankets since Harley likes to burrow and cuddle. The large stuffed animal works great. I'd also make sure it doesn't have any eyes or noses that can be chewed off. Are you crate training your puppy? Well, I hope this helps you and good luck!
