I have a three month old male Boxer puppy that is crated while he is alone and at night. He is usually pretty good about it at night, only sometimes do we get the 5-10 minutes of barking. The problem arises if someone wakes him up during the night, usually when someone goes to the bathroom or he hears the snow plow. Once he wakes up we are bombarded with an onslaught of barking that just doesnt end. It doesnt make any difference if it is 2:00am or 6:00 am, we are treated to an hour or two of relentless barking. I dont want to go to the cage since that would be rewarding his behavior. To tell you the truth, I am on the verge of getting a barking collar. Anyone have any ideas? Please remember this is only when noises wake him up in the middle of the night.
