Like much internet advice I find short answers incomplete - and mine was. I really want to ad that making a crate/xpen/gated puppy area should never be seen as "punishment". These partitioned puppy areas should be conditioned to be safe places for a puppy/dog. Mine, thankfully, tolerates and even likes her xpens probably because it's where she eats, receives treats, sleeps, chews and even plays. This took about a week or so. Now she voluntarily goes into her xpens (in my case) on her own and when she's put there involuntarily she might whine for a minute before settling down with a chew and/or going to sleep.
I have tried to bring my B to other houses with dogs but she tends to not get along with them. Or the fact that my B has so much energy the other dogs have enough and mine just won't stop. Do anyone have any suggestions? It will take my dog at least an hour and a half to settle down.
If they are outside it is usually OK but to bring the dogs inside it becomes very territorial. My dog usually causing the issues.

can you describe exactly what her behavior is? This will help to give suggestions. Have you but her through any obedience training?
The more exercise you can give the dog, the better she will be. Walk her at least an hr 2 times a day…
A basic obedience class is also required to help her learn her manners.
