Sudden change in behaviour while crated?
Lately, Cali has been acting more dramatic than usual about going in her crate every morning... despite her having the exact same crate schedule for the past year and a half.
One morning, she was almost "screaming" when she realized it was crate time. She's never really had an issue with it since this past week and usually settles down within a couple moments.
Are there any little activities I could do? The only thing I can think of that might help is to just bundle up, put her on a long line and let her run around outside for ten minutes before we leave and see if she's just starting to get more energetic in the morning... since usually, she likes just sleeping up on my bed and on the couch until we leave. I'll have to start taking her for a quick walk in the mornings once spring comes as well, I think.
