I just got my new english bulldog puppy yesterday. Everything is going pretty good so far. The only accidents she had so far was during the night. I'm going to divide the crate to make a smaller place. She seems to whine after peeing. I am able to put her in her crate once she has fell asleep in my lap. She usually wakes up while putting her in so I sit beside the crat with the door only opened enough to put my hand in to relax her till she falls back to sleep. If she is awake and I need to put her in the crate for a bit while I do something she starts whining real loud. I wait till she calms down before opening the door. I still need to get her use to it for when I'm gone. I did read to feed her in the crate or give her a kong toy stuff with peanut butter (only offered in crate for special treat) to keep her mind off of other stuff. I do put her nylabone in the crate but she isn't to interested in it. I was wanting to know what other stuff to try to get her to calm down. I have her crate outside in the hallway by the bedroom. My husband has allergies and doesn't want it in the room and cause he needs to get up for work in the morning. I'm not worried about the peeing in the crate problem cause I can find ways to deal with that. Just the whining that I'm concerned about now.
