Now accepting any and all crate training tips. I've read lots on the internet and from close friends, I would like to hear specific things that have worked for you. I got a new pup on Sunday and am currently crate training him in an apartment (so, close neighbors). I work 8 hours a day but go home to visit/play every day at lunch. I have him in the crate at night until he is housebroken. I would like him in the bed with me eventually, but I need him 1. not peeing everywhere 2. a little bigger first and 3. less likely fall off the bed. He's pretty small right now. I have the crate in my room with a blanket over the sides, a couple toys and one of my teeshirts for smell. He seems to do ok in it when he is tired, but when he wakes up and realizes he's alone he whines. (I think he was sleeping in the crate with his mom prior to coming to live with me.) Any tips and tricks for crate training or house breaking that worked for you would be great!
