Our 12 week old girl is crate trained for nights and when we need to be away from home with no problems. We take her outside 1 last time at night before putting her to bed in her crate. She often will fall asleep in her favorite quiet spot which is in the spare bathroom between the wall and the toilet. She doesn't nap in her crate or in the open, she naps in this spot or under a bench in the entry. Much as I would love her to lie by us, she doesn't. At night if we have to get her out of one of these spots to take her outside before bedtime, she has started to growl and nip. This also happened at the vet office when she fell asleep under a chair. The vet witnessed it and we confirmed there is nothing physically wrong with her. If it continues we are going to discuss at our next visit but in the meantime, any ideas? Tonight we are going to put her in the crate if we see her head for a nap.
