My puppy is like 6 months old and I have had her for about 2 weeks. I've noticed that she will sleep in her crate when I put her in and then 'lock it' when I'm working on my computer, but when the crate door is open, she would rather sleep next to my computer workstation? I mean, it's carpeted but the crate has a bed which is very comfortable. Any ideas why she insists on sleeping near me and not in the crate even with the door open?

My best suggestion is that because she's a puppy, and she'd rather be near her person rather than away. My adult dogs are the same way- if I'm at my computer they'll lay near by.

If this bothers you, I'd suggest you teach her a 'go to crate' cue that means go there and stay there if you haven't already, or just lock her in the crate when you want to work without her nearby.
