Has anyone had any instances where your dog seemly out of nowhere gets scared of being in the crate? We had this happen a few months ago and last night it recurred. Penny is almost 2 years and has been crate trained since she was a very young puppy. She always sleeps in the crate at night, downstairs. She has always liked it, but I would never say she loves it, only going in there on her own when she is very exhausted. About an hour after putting her to bed last night she started crying and panting. I went down and gave her some water and let her go outside to potty. Then I had to push her back into the crate. She kept panting and whining for several hours. When I checked on her the second time she was slightly shaking. She seemed fine the instant she got out. Same thing this morning when I got up. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Pretty much the same thing happened in December for 2-3 nights where I thought I was going to have to let her sleep on the couch with me. My only guesses are something about the furnace scares her as she is near a heating vent (normally this is a bonus in cold weather!) or the house is so dry that there is static electricity in her bedding.
