My family's dog Myszka used to love her crate. She would jump right in and sometimes even go in alone just to relax. It seemed like a safe zone for her. But then suddenly (literally overnight) she refused to get in. It seemed like she was terrified and she wouldn't even go near her crate. No one in my family can think of anything bad happening to her in the crate, so we're very confused. We haven't forced her to sleep in there, because we know that will only make it worse, but we did make her go in once because we absolutely had too. We got a bigger, comfier crate for her and we are putting toys and treats in there, then praising when she goes in (she only ever goes in for just a second). I'm really curious if anyone can think of any causes or solutions for this situation. I really wanna know what's bothering my pup!!
