I just rescued a female 4 month old Boxer/Rottie mix. The previous owner was not nice to her, although they let her sleep in the bed. I have a crate for her (since she is young and has to earn trust of being alone in the house) unfortunately she whines and whines and WHINES when we put her in. She learned how to escape so I need to get a lock of some sort so she cannot open the door, but how can I get her to stay in there overnight without whining allllllll night (since she is going to be a large adult dog, myself, husband and the dog will not fit in the bed eventually). I have no problems with her other then the crate, she is very intelligent and friendly just want to try and get her used to the crate so when she is large she wont be kicking us out of the bed. LOL!! Thanks!!!!
