you, but generally does well in her crate even if you are passing by. The most vocalizing in the crate that Arrietty currently does is when she sees us leaving with the other dogs. We have been practicing her handling this frustration with positive reinforcement and have seen some improvement. It will be important to continue to crate Arrietty during the day to help her independence. Arrietty does love her crate and takes great comfort knowing she has it if she wants it. She always goes in her crate when asked, and will sometimes retreat to her crate if something has startled her. She sleeps in her crate at night without a peep, and an occasional snore.
