I just got a 9 month old westie puppy. I am trying to crate train him and he is doing very well with the toilet thing, but he still has bad separation anxiety. His crate is in my bed room and when I get up at night to use the bathroom and he starts barking less than 30 seconds after I leave the room. He also sleeps as close to the edge of the crate as possible just to be close to me. I am really tempted to let him sleep in bed with me because ultimatlly, once he is fully house broken, that is what I would like to do. What should I do?
Any additional advice about crate training and taking care of puppies would be much appreciated.
