Ive started to crate train my new puppy. It's not going bad but she does whine and howl for awhilw when i put her in, natutally shes a pup and wants to be around me and my other dog. But she will eventually quite down and either sleep or lie there. However i noticed that when i have my other dog in her crate and i put the puppy in her respected crate (both crates are in the same room) she does not cry or howl at all. Should i continue to do this as part of crate training or am i helping the development of separation anxiety? Thanks

My older dog no longer stays in the crate at night. She has earned my trust to not destroy anything. However she does go in when i have to leave the house for a couple hours. As far as my new pup i almost never have them in the crate at the same time, unless im leaving the house.
I was just curious as it seems she does not make a peep if they're both in the crate.
As far as my older dog, she is completely crate trained she makes no noises while in the crate and when i say " go in the crate" she walks in and plops down.
I will definitely give that a try with the food!

Next question about crate training. When is it time to move up to a bigger size. Shes currentlt about 15lbs and is in a med. However on black Friday, tractor supply had a 50% off deal so i bought the extra large crate. At what point ahould i transition?
Thanks
