Crate training new puppy
Just brought home a v puppy. We also have a four year old v and the two are starting to play and get along well despite the older dog's initial hesitation.
We are in the process of crate training the puppy. She is starting to go in her own crate on her own and enjoy it.
However, when we leave our home, the puppy hates it. We have set up face time when we are gone and she barks, whines, and chews on the crate. We have been gone no more than an hour and a half at a time. Our other dog is totally fine in his crate.
I have also noticed our puppy will at times during the day go into the older dogs crate and lie down. The older dog will sometimes lie in there with the pup.
Does anyone have any thoughts about leaving the pup in the same crate as the older dog? Or should we keep separate crates for them?
