You need to get your puppy to stop crying in the crate.

Not just so you can get some sleep or go to work, but also because the more your puppy cries in their crate, the more it becomes a "crying room." If your puppy develops a habit of crying in their crate, it'll get harder and harder to break that habit.

If you leave a puppy alone and don't respond to him at night at all, most puppies will eventually stop crying.

For some puppies this can happen within a day or so.

It's also important to recognize that leaving a puppy to cry alone won't make him tougher.

Make sure your crying puppy is not doing so because she has to go potty.

In fact, it's a good idea to take her outside right before she goes in her crate and immediately when she comes out.

Making sure that you encourage your puppy to feel okay by herself in her crate is super important.

Your dog is lonely. If your dog is at your side whenever you're home, then gets locked in a crate whenever you leave the house or go to bed, there's a good chance he's crying because he misses you.

These dogs usually will settle eventually, but may start crying again whenever you move around.
