Hi everyone,

We have crate trained our 4 month old puppy since day one (8 weeks) and we thought it was going great. When we put her in there, she usually lies down and goes to sleep. If she's not sleepy she often puts up a fuss for a couple of minutes before settling down with a toy. We put her in when we eat, when she's falling asleep, for bedtime and when we leave the house. However, my concern is, she never goes in on her own. She's never happy to go in there, except at nighttime for sleeping. I figure she has associated the crate with us leaving or ignoring her.... Is this something to worry about? Is it too late to make her love it and go in on her own? When she has a choice where to nap she usually picks a blanket on the floor instead. Any suggestions?
