Bentley is not having a good day...
Nor are we. First day back to work. Had a nice long weekend to try to establish some of routine. I work from home and have 2 larger crates in my office so they can move around, play, and plenty of room to stretch out to sleep (each in their own crate). Bentley isn't liking the larger crate so I put him in his smaller one. He has not stopped whining/yelping yet !!! He sleeps in the crate fine all night long, one potty break and back to sleep until 6:30 (ish). Over the weekend, I perodically put him in the crate for a nap. Seems he likes it okay if he's tired and wanting to sleep so I don't think its a crate issue. He is in there taking a fit and a half, clawing at the door...and now Evye's whining because it's bothering her. I talk to him reassuringly. I put my fingers in the cage to try to settle him and he continues his high-pitched screetching. What a mouth on that little thing. We have already had our 15-minute potty-play break so he doesn't have to potty. I haven't given in to take him out of his crte but how long is too long to let them whine and carry on?
