Winnie is 7 months old now and I have been doing all the things I have read about regarding leaving her in the crate when she is being left alone and have had success to some degree. I can manage to leave her without crying for about an hour now which I consider great considering it was slow going at the beginning and she would cry within minutes. My question is really to do with what she does while in the crate. She just sits by the door the whole time (not lying down but sitting). I have given her things to eat (nothing she can choke on but stuff like frozen kongs etc) and small treats that I know she loves and would normally wolf them down. She doesn't touch them the whole time she is in the crate with the door shut although she will eat them if the door is open or if we are in the room with her. I have tried leaving toys and chew toys but again she doesn't touch them. I hate the thought of her sitting by the door doing nothing but waiting for me to come back and let her out. I don't ever make a fuss of her going in or coming out and she doesn't seem stressed going in. She will go in when I ask her to. I always come back to find her sitting quietly by the door. Is it ok for her to do this? Am I worrying for nothing?
