Hi, hoping someone can help! We have a 3 year old yellow lab who is crate trained at night. We have never had any sort of issue with him in 3 years, he goes in the crate on his own and stays perfectly quiet throughout the night until morning. Four nights ago he started resisting going in the crate at bed time and has whined through the night while being incredibly restless. It's not potty related, this much I have tried. One thing to mention: two weekends ago, my wife and I were out of town and my mom was baby/dog/house sitting for us. She mentioned that Wrigley wouldn't go in his crate for her and whined at night while we were gone, but didn't think much of this considering he has done this before when we have been gone and he went right back to his routine of going in his crate on his own, etc. for 3 nights after we returned home. It wasn't until 3 nights after the fact that this started. His dog bed in the crate has been washed, along with his blankets to make sure there wasn't something on them that was causing this. I have tried changing the bed, blankets with no luck. The fact that he was fine for a few nights after we got home and THEN this started has me really confused! And really tired!! Thanks for any help!
