Puppy Wont Stop Crying

    My Girlfriend and I got a Puppy (A husky mix) and he has a horrible crying habit. The only times he isn't whining is when he's being held, asleep, or when he's under our coffee table. He was born May 4th of this year (2013) Making him Two months and 10 days old at the time of my making this post. I take him out to use the restroom all the time. He is getting plenty of food and water. We padded his kennel (Which we want him to use when sleeping so he doesn't chew cords), and he isn't alone in the house (We have three cats. One of them fears him, but the other two don't really care if he's there or not). As I type, he's howling and I'm sitting on the ground next to him. I'm thinking it's separation anxiety, but that doesn't explain why he'll violently cry when I'm just walking to the kitchen for some water where he can still see me from the living room. It's stressing my girlfriend out.

    Welcome to Auspet.

    Is it possible to keep him in a bathroom/laundry instead of a crate? He might be more comfortable in a small room. I've raised a few pups and i find it works well if they either have a room to themselves or sleep in your room. My pups usually get over the angst part of it after a couple of nights. If you have a stuffed animal, they sometimes feel safer and not so alone. Other than that it takes time for him to acknowledge that you haven't abandoned him there, and that you will come back! Its often the fear of separation. If he is in a separate room, when he does stop crying, you wont have to disturb him for potty visits until morning. He'll have the freedom to go as he pleases, whilst not upsetting the potty training method at all.
