My Labrador is almost 2. I’ve used a crate as she chews things when left alone for longer than an hour. She didn’t like it when she a pup, then I stopped using it as she was ok alone, then I moved house and she chewed lots when alone, so I got a big crate and she took to it really well, went in to chill in the evening even when people were home. Now my housemates have told me that the last week or so she has started to whine during the night (I do night shifts sometimes and she sleeps in her crate when I do, whereas when I’m home she sleeps in my bed. This has been the case for almost a year and she’s been fine) really loud. I’m assuming she’s the same when everyone is out during the day I don’t get why she has suddenly started being unhappy with it again, I feel awful! Does anyone have any idea why this is happening and what I can do? I’m moving next week, into a house with a live in landlord. He also has a dog but doesn’t use a crate. He’s happy about having my dog live there but I’m worried he won’t be if she whines all night when I’m not there. Help!
