not wanting to sleep
(Barcelona - spain)
My Flix is 8 months old and has slept in this crate since arriving at 3 months and always slept right through the night.
He has a basket in our lounge where he loves and lays down and goes to sleepafter excersing outside and then he walks to his crate to sleep behind a doggy gate sowe do not close the crate door ever just this gate.
A week ago he starts whining and biting the gate starting at 01.00. We have taken him outside in case he needs to releive himself again but wants to play.
When inside he goes directly to the basket and falls asleep. We have tried putting him in the crate straight way but the whines as well.
also he has started to whine in the mornings too at 06.30 when usually we open the gate at 07.30 for his walk.
health wise he is ok.
Could this be some hormonal problem or the crate is no longer his haven?
