Is it just at night that she hates it? Does she stay in it during the day okay? The crate is in your bedroom, right?

You poor dear, you probably need a good nights sleep don't you

What does your mom think?

What exactly is happening and what exactly are you doing?

She hates her crate at anytime of the day, she wants nothing to do with it. I have not slept for 2 nights because she just does not want to be in there and she barks and cries. I have one crate in my room and then I have on down stairs so my mom takes care of her during the day when I go to work. Is this normal behavior? Also, the only way she gets in there is if I get on the floor with her and sleep right next to her.

My mom keeps telling me we have to train her in there even if she cries and barks but I feel so horrible when she does not stop barking . I play with her a lot and she goes out often but we need to train her to like her crates, but for some reason it just isnt working. Do you have any ideas to help me with this? Thank you so much.
