Currently Poppy is sleeping on the floor in our bedroom. Her crate is in there but she hardly goes in it.
She spends up to 2 hours at a time alone during the day in the kitchen, which is puppy-proofed and I am having to work quite hard to keep up positive associations with that room as she obviously doesn't like being left alone and was starting to worry a bit about being in there as she doesn't like it when I am coming and going without her. So we have lots of fun in there now and all her meals and best toys are in there and she's OK with it.
I know lots of people have suggested crate training, and I am working on it, but I honestly don't think she will ever take to it - I think it's because of the heat. Even when we are getting on well with a little training session, she will ALWAYS come out and choose to slob out on the cool tiled floor instead, or the carpet if we're upstairs. She obviously likes the feeling of the cool tiles and the blow from the aircon and I would never want to push her into using the crate and becoming less comfortable as a result.
We would really like her out of our bedroom though. We treated ourselves to a VERY expensive new bed when we arrived here and she is chewing on it during the night. None of her other chews are as interesting as the bed!
We have tried picking her up and quietly putting her back into her crate when she does it, but she eventually picks up on this being a game. We have done some 'default settle' training with some success, but she still gets bored during the night and starts on it again while we sleep.
We would really prefer her to go sleep in the kitchen, but I don't want it to be a horrible experience for her and I don't want her to get negative connotations about the only puppy-safe room in the whole house.
