Poor Zelda, it's so hard to try and figure out what they want. My gut tells me to wait until the cone is off, how does she fit in her crate with that on? Anyway, once it's off you might want to try and do some "shaping" with her and the crate. Timmy will be two the end of this month and I finally decided to crate train him since I'll be bringing home his little sister in a couple weeks. He HATED his crate from day one, except at night when I think he was so tired he just passed out. I started a thread on Tim's crate training somewhere here, I'm sure you can search it's called "I love shaping". Like the thread says I really like shaping I think it's fun and Tim thinks it's fun too so that might be something to consider. Let me know if you have any more ?'s if you decide to go that route. Just to add, Tim now sleeps in our bed, but it had little to do with his dislike of his crate, he just outgrew it and I never got another one. I now have two since he loves to sleep in his, which is downstairs next to the expen set up for Mae.
