Thank you for everyone's suggestions. We will try him upstairs, we just don't have a large bedroom so trying to fit the crate in will be a struggle. @Zande yes it's quite big for him, we wanted to ensure he can fully move without discomfort.
Also, @Zande you're correct, we have been looking for quite a while but we're lucky enough to find this little guy. We've named him Loki and we definitely feel it suits his mischievous side haha.
I was hoping someone could help me.
I picked up a boy puppy last week (now 11 weeks old), and have been training him in a crate since. Noted it hasn't been very long, but I'm concerned when it comes to closing the cage. Every night, without fail, he gets distraught everytime the door is closed... We do everything for him to enjoy his space, and he constantly goes in and out throughout the day and evening (playing and sleeping). I was hoping someone could advise if they have had this issue before?
Our house rules are no upstairs so unfortunately we want to refrain from bringing him into the bedroom.
