We have had our Vizsla puppy for 3 weeks. No luck in crate training at all. You can lie down next to the crate, put tons of toys and frozen Kongs in there with him, everything and he just screams and won't stop. We are lucky and the longest he would need crated is 2 hours 3 times a week, but he goes crazy and poops and pees all in the cage if he's in there for any length of time. The only time he's happy is if he goes to bed with my daughter with his head on a pillow covered up to his neck. We have 2 5 month old lab puppies too and have tried putting him beside them with no luck either.
