So, my puppy has to be in cage almost 24/7 due to an injury however when he cannot see you, he cries, howls and has even started to bark. He is only 15 and a half weeks old so I understand that the cage is scary for him. I have tried staying in his eye sight at all times. I've even moved my computer desk into the bedroom where his cage is. But no matter what he won't stop. He will stop when he is sleeping or when my partner comes home but not when I'm around. I don't give him any attention when he cries, howls or barks. I wait till he is quiet and then go over to him but how can I stop this. I live in a flat and it is not ideal to have a dog barking and howling. Please help me get some ideas as ways to stop this. I have tried giving him toys and bones to keep him occupied but it isn't working. :/ I hate to hear him cry, howl and bark.
