Hello there! My puppy just got to our house on Wednesday!! I was curious, but it is normal for a Doberman puppy to whine in their crate when they are first in it right and it is closed right? I mean, it's a new place you are alone in.. (And she is obssessed with attention), but she really doesn't like her crate. I mean maybe it is just too early to tell, but it is nearly impossible to get her in it. I don't want to force her in there, cause that is rather mean.. but she has to sleep sometime! I am putting her in there in small incremements and only let her out of she is quiet. I NEVER use the crate as a punishment, and I always leave little treats in there she can find on her own, so i am not sure why she despices it so much! Maybe it is because she hates to be alone! Did your puppy do this? Do I just bear it until she stops?
