I have found Mags is not overly fond of her crate in the laundry at bed time. I realised tonight she is afraid of the dark and that is the main issue . Not sure how to resolve this one as how do you teach a dog the dark is OK?
I went out the back with her for the night pee before bed and unless the light was on she flatly refused to move. Turned the back light on and she was fine. She can't sleep anywhere else as she chews anything that is not nailed down ( and will chew anyway if it is)
