In my opinion, this is a perfect reason to put them in the crate. With one little one and one growing up, we have a handful whenever the dogs have the run of the house. I put them away when I need to really get something done, and they quiet down as usual and will be quite good for a few hours even when I am making enough noise to remind them that I'm there.Quote:Originally posted by Lora&Tippi:
I guess what I am asking is; is it alright to put her in her crate off and on throughout the day, for my sanity as well as hers??
If they cry about it, try setting a goal of say 30 minutes, leave them in there that long then spring them, repeat this until they are ok with it then go for more. Eventually they should feel comfortable enough to climb right in (provided they don't have to potty) and hang out all day.
