Our Shih Tzu will be 2 in May and lately when it is time for bed, he tries to bite me. He starts off sleeping beside me and when it is time to put him in the crate he growls and tries to bite me. I tell him it is bed time but he gets very angry. We just purchased a play yard and are thinking about getting rid of the crate and using the play yard for nighttime instead.
He gets really comfy beside me on the couch and we both fall asleep. He is asleep and I do wake him up to move him. I will try some treats. I am going to try to eliminate the crate and put a pay yard around his bed for night time.
