    I believe in you gotta be cruel to be kind.
    Oh man, Peta. I'm assuming that is a figure of speech. PMSL.

    What do you all think of that statement???
    You are setting yourself up for a lot of drama down the road. As social animals, dogs also have a hierarchy and alpha dogs make the rules, not 12 week old puppies. You think you are being extra kind to her, but she will pay you back with....

    Little or no respect.

    You are treating her like gen x parents treated their gen y kids. Look how well that's worked out! LMAO.

    Seriously tho, if you want her to be independent, respectful and obedient, you are going exactly the wrong way about it (IMO). On the contrary, you are likely to end up with a dog who suffers separation anxiety (not funny at all), and who is whiny, disobedient, and not what you had hoped for at all.

    Our dogs LOVE their beds and race to their crates, tails wagging, when we say bedtime. They don't whimper and carry on. They've done this (slept in crates) from about 4 months old (as soon as they were toilet trained and could "hold it" all night for a fortnight with zero "accidents").

    Any suggestion that having them sleep apart from you is cruel or unkind, is simply ridiculous.
