So It's been a couple weeks now that I have had my puppy. I am having such a hard time crate training him and potty training him! He has been the hardest puppy ever. I hate to say it but I'm starting to get a little frustrated. A puppy has never given me this much of a hard time. He REFUSES to go in the crate. He fights me when I try to put him in there, he pushed away. I have tried to put him in there for short amount of times then reward him with treats. It DOESNT work. Now I'm trying to feed him in the crate and leaving the door open and he still wont go completely in to eat, only half way. When I do put him in there he BARKS NON STOP! FOR HOURS! I'm not even joking. I've had that puppy that cry for the first ten minutes and then falls asleep BUT MY PUPPY MICHA DOES NOT, HE DOESNT EVEN LAY DOWN IN THE CRATE. HE SITS THE WHOLE TIME. I've put treats in there, toys, something that smells like me, a dog bed. A blanket over. I NEED TO FIND A SOLUTION OR I WILL BE FOCED TO GIVE HIM UP. It's so bad that one day i left him in the crate for two hours while I was in class and Animal Control was called. My landlord lives on the property SO I CAN NOT HAVE MICHA BARKING. The reason for crate training him is because he goes potty EVERYWHERE and he is messing up my wood floors bad. Please help, I would hate to give him up. I don't know what else to do. He seems to be very shy and only follows me, I socialize him on the daily and he doesn't always want to go with anyone else but me. Sounds like separation anxiety to me.
