Whining in crate at night
Ugh Joey us frustrating the hell out of me right now. He does not settle well in a crate at all it seems. He will settle down for a bit with frozen kongs and we have a few toys you can stuff food and treats in to keep him busy, but as soon as he is done getting through the goodies he starts that high pitched whistling whine again. I've been playing some crate games with him, but I can't get him to the point of settling down when he is crated while we are here. It's really annoying at night when I'm trying to sleep since he will do it for hours.
Any advice on what else I could try? His crate has to stay in my room so I can't just move him out of earshot. He just doesn't seem to be ok with being crated while we are home.
He does fine when we aren't here. One of my friends works for my landlord and she is here during the day. If I leave him for any reason he barks for a couple minutes and then quiets down and doesn't make a peep after that. So... It's just when I'm home that he does it if I crate him for any reason.
