So I finally picked up my bouncing baby lab puppy today, 7 weeks old. I've read pretty much every thread on crate training on this forum but nothing prepared me for this. I feel like I did everything right, no food or water after 7. Played around outside and he fell asleep on my chest for a half hour. I slowly placed him in his kennel and he was fine for 10 minutes then absolutely flipped out when he realized he was in his kennel. He's going on 3 hours now of straight whining, how has he not worn himself out!? My wife is a nurse and has to work in the morning so she's pissed because his whines echo through the house. I'm downstairs with him and even though I'm right next to him he just keeps going. We knew it was going to be restless nights but didn't think it would be nights where we got absolutely no sleep at all. Any suggestions? Is this normal to keep whining for this long? I don't know what to do, he needs to learn to sleep in there.
