I just got my 9-week old Corgi, Lily, on Saturday. We began crate training right when she got home, and the first two nights were easy! She went in her crate when we asked, and slept there too. Hardly any accidents as she would go immediately when we would take her out. She was a very sleepy puppy. After taking her to the vet, her lethargy made sense- she was sick with an upper respiratory infection.
After giving her just one dose of antibiotic, she was a completely different puppy. Bouncing off the walls, running around the condo, and barking a lot. We put her in the crate after going outside and she whined a lot. We thought it was separation anxiety, so we ignored her by staying in another room. However, after checking on her in 10 minutes, she was covered in diarrhea.
Now we have put her in the crate for the night, and she is whining again. I don't know if she is whining to tell us she needs to go outside or if she is whining because she has separation anxiety. I'm afraid to take her outside now as I could be rewarding bad behavior. I tried ignoring her but she has been whining for the past 20 minutes. I don't know what to do. Any advice would be great!
