Crate Training for 7month-12month puppy

I am new to this site. I joined because we currently just rescued new addition to our family. We currently have a 3 year old male blue nose pit. We just got a female, anywhere from 7-12 months old. We got her a few weeks ago. They are doing great but her only problem in being in the cage. She does ok during the day, but at night time we barks and cries just about every hour. We put a blanket in the cage as well as over it. We kept the lights on low, sometimes turned them off. We have the TV on so have her hear sometime of noise. But it's getting worse. She just wants attention. How can we stop her from doing this?

Welcome to GP. You are doing all of the right things, in time she will adjust. It is rough at first for us as owners, but you need to endure and she will adjust in time.

Do you keep the crates next to each other? If so, try separate rooms for 2 weeks. If not try having them close.

Yes I have them in separate locations.
I thought maybe something else I can do but I suppose not.
Thank you for writing back.

She is new to the environment and not crate trained. Crying and whining are part of the training process. It sucks, but it has to be suffered through. Do not give in and let her out when she starts, or she will learn the crying = freedom.

Also if you plan to have the crates close, supervise at first to see how they react before leaving them unattended.

Welcome to the forum jenn.rycyk!

Stick to your guns, so to speak. When the dog cries, wimpers, howl's or barks---ignore it. Never even once correct it, holler or acknowledge it's behavior. Just like kids, negative attention is still attention and they will associate their behavior with getting attention.

Make going into the kennel a happy experience using a friendly voice and some treats. Let the dog know that it's not a punishment. In time the dog will associate the crate as a safe and comfortable place to be. Once the dog is in the cage, close and lock the door and walk away without addressing the dog at all. No talking or praising, just ignore it. Despite it's behavior (unless it's destroying it's bed or something similar), let it stay in the cage until the dog settles down and is quiet. Once that occurs, walk to the cage, again without a word, open the door and walk away. If the dog follows you, give it some praise and in an hour or so repeat the process.

Once the dog is comfortable in the cage and knows that it is not a punishment it will be more content to be in there and will probably go in on it's own when it wants to.
Good luck and please let us know how it goes.

Joe

all good advice.
also some exercise before crating will help them to release energy and chill out.

so Brooklyn, is still doing this behavior! I don't know what else I can do, I guess just wait it out right? We even went as far as giving her a Kong toy at night to keep her busy but 2am, 4am-5am she barks and barks and barks. We get up at 5, so we let her out, and then she is fine. I guess she just wants out to play and eat!! but we aren't getting any sleep in the meantime LOL.
We tried putting her cage in our room at night time, and she cries the whole night so that was worse.
Why did I think getting another dog would be a good idea????? LOL

Crate Training for 7month-12month puppy

As long as you keep letting her out when she barks, you're reinforcing the behaviour and teaching her that when she makes a fuss, you give in. You need to ignore it. I know it's hard and incredibly frustrating, but she will tire herself out and settle eventually.

Hello everyone!! I am Steve-Jenn.Rycyk husband.
First off thank you for all the suggestions and support!!!! We are still currently having an issue with Brooklyn. We do not let her out when she barks in the crate at night. We get up at 5 for work that's when we let her out. I don't know what else we can do for this. However there have been a few times (maybe 2) where we have fallen asleep with Brooklyn in our bed and she was fine for the whole night!!! When we first put her in the cage she is fine until anywhere from 2am-5am. Any suggestions?? Or do we just stick it out and let her bark? Our other pitbull Blue normally sleeps in bed with us at night. We even tried putting him in his cage at night and moving the cages so they can see each other. That was unsuccessful as well.

At 5am when you let her out do you wait until she quiets to let her out or do you just let her out even if shes whimpering? That will make a big difference. Also sounds like more exercise may be needed for the pup not excruciating half way kill the dog exercise but maybe extend the walk or fetch so she doesn't have so much energy at night. Sounds like alot of night time energy. Also how does taking her potty in the night work?? Whats the procedure for that? Anytime you open the crate to let her out you're waiting for absolute calmness and quietness. If one peep or movement is detected then any act to release the dog must be halted no matter how long it takes. If not then you're reinforcing her bad behavior. Look up the nothing in life is free training method. In order for her to get what she wants you need to get what you want first.

I wait till she is quite to let her out of the crate. I am going to try the longer walks and I am also in the process of making a flirt pole to try. She doesn't need to go potty in the night that what I thought at first so I would get up at 2am and let her out. She wouldn't go potty just sit next to me outside. I have to double check with my wife make sure she is only letting her out of the crate when she is calm. I am going to look up that training method now. Thank you!!!
