Question by Michelle: What to do for puppy crying in crate at night?
We have a 8 week old yellow lab puppy who we brought home 2 days ago. He is very sad in his crate at night. (We are using the crate training method for housebreaking) We have his crate in the laundry room downstairs, with some toys in it, but he cries throughout the night. Can anyone recommend what to do to make him stop? Should he be crated in an area of the house that he is more familiar with? I know he has only been here 2 days, but we are very tired!!! Thanks in advance!

You are doing the right thing. Let him cry it out (make sure you give him a potty break in the middle of the night). Put on a fan in your room for white noise.
