What did you do when you were close by at night and he let rip? Make soothing noises? Sing to him? Or tell him to SHUT UPPPPPP :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

We also put a parrot cover (old sheet) over the crate so Mitch couldn't tell if we were there or not and he got a MAJOR fright when he thought he was alone and got an immediate rollicking when he started mouthing off.

Having said all that, he's now 4 1/2 months and no longer cries, but he does tend to wake up early (by our standards) and scrabble* in the corner of his cage. It's a challenge to come downstairs and NOT go straight to him to bawl him out, but wait till he's quiet and only THEN take his cover off and take him outside. You get the picture what we're TRYing to achieve...

*I'd like responses please from anyone else whose dog can play Scrabble whether or not at 6.45 a.m. and at whatever age :wink:
