We have been doing a sheet over the crate but she wants us to cover the front too. I feel bad that she wouldn't be able to see us then but I guess she'd hear us but I guess I am imagining myself in that situation and how uncomfortable it would be but it wouldn't be like that for an animal right? Do you think we should do this or do you do this and how is your dog with it?

she does bark and whine at night but I assume it's normal as we've only had her for a week. We do take her out obviously but the barking/whining at times is still happening even after we've taken her out. The trainer wants her crate to be like a den and be dark even though our room is dark but this is why she suggested it. She also wants us to have a fan near her.
The barking and whining can be normal, but the sheet over crate is something to try and I would think harmless. Myself I would give the little dog another week or so to see if the bark/whine stops by itself. Then sheet can be tried the fan not gonna comment on cause I've never used it.
