For us, I kept the crate in our room where she could see us! With my first, she was in another room. Recently, she started this growly behavior and once I knew she was not whining to go out....one shot of Bitter Apple to "hush"....now all she needs to see is the bottle; but she sleeps all night in the crate; our other 2 sleep with my 14 year old...the pied piper! I think it is reassuring to them to know that they are in the crate, but they can see you. I also used to put my fingers through the bars which she would lick and that would calm her down. Hope this helps. The crate really helps with the cues to go potty as well!
