Australian Shepherd Not Sleeping At Night
Hi there. I have an 8-month-old Australian Shepherd named Stormi. She's been great with sleeping in her crate through the night since day one. However this past week she will no longer sleep in it. She barks wildly when put in it at night.
We've tried to bring the crate upstairs to a spare room and sleep in it with her but she still just wildly barks. Even when we let her out of the crate in the room no difference.
The only way we are able to get any kind of sleep is to leave her out of the crate and sleep on the couch in the living room. Any tips on what to do?
We have cats that live in our room so trying to figure something out without kicking them out.
