I think this is a great idea. Changes the expected sequence of events, too. I sort of accidentally used this method to teach Squash to sleep in the crate because when he was very wee and I was weary of puppy shenanigans I would "put him to bed" upstairs in his crate in the bedroom (usually with Maisy in the bedroom as well) and have an hour or two puppy-free before going to bed myself. There's no reason you couldn't do the same thing with an adult dog to shift their habits.

Can I suggest benadryl or something else to knock her out? If she gets drowsy, she'll eventually give up.

I have contemplated drugging her, lol. Is that bad?

I'm not sure she'd settle in the crate next to the bed before I went to bed. I think that would end up with her screaming in the bedroom with me, wanting out and put on the bed. It would be worth a shot though.

Pet Tutor looks interesting.... I've thought of trying to rig something up (waht is that other treat dispenser called?) It doesn't seem to work if I am the one that is giving her treats.

We have tried crate covers in the past but they have not made a dent. :/

No judgements lol

It's not harmful and may calm her down enough for her to realize that she isn't DYING

What about putting her crate ON the bed initially, so everything is the same but the being in the crate part - the view, the proximity to you, etc.

Pet Tutor or Manners Minder/Treat and Train both are remote reward ideas that could def work I think.
