Had a bath; now listening to waves on my lumie lamp, with a backdrop of squeaking puppy.
Wondering why she still protests at being put to bed in her cage, almost 13 weeks on.
We were doing so well until the 2 x 40° days. She has her routine, got her blankets at one end, cool mat and water at the other. Toy octopus, and bedtime bickie - which she never eats until the morning!

Maybe she doesn't like the cage and wants some love..

I can't leave her loose in my house overnight, it's too hazardous for her.
She gets love all day long, never spends more than an hour in the house on her own.

I wasn't insinuating she doesn't get love. Dogs are like children. Nobody likes a cage..

It's very clear you have complete adoration for your little puppy girl.. maybe doggy proof a room and try that? Dump the cage?

Crating pups is a fairly standard way of helping them feel more secure.

'Crating pups is a fairly standard way of helping them feel more secure.'

This is what I'd been told.
She was doing fine, as I said, until those 2 hot days. She was even going in there from choice sometimes.
She does stop once I stop moving around upstairs. Thankfully, my neighbour's deaf.
She woke me at 5, so didn’t spend long in there. Went in the garden, then under the chair in my bedroom for a couple of hours snooze, followed by a walk.
I look upon the cage a bit like a cot or playpen. It's unbelievable what she finds to chew. Thankfully not the furniture!
What am I doing now?
Eating my green porridge and fruit, very slowly.

Oh I thought you lived on your own ? and that you work ? So does puppy get taken to a family member daily ?

and yes ! puppy has had enough of her cage. Why is she not sleeping in your bedroom ? or at the very least have a cage in your bedroom ?

HowTry moving the crate to a dark quiet corner and cover with a sheet, also put her in the crate for a few minutes during the day and leave the room, she will get used to it again

Dogs are as individual as children so only you will know what is best Gow. It is widely accepted that the crates are seen by anima;s as a place of comfirt and refuge, their safe place, so it's worth persevering as long as it's not upsetting the pup. Good advice from FunkyChicken.
It's your companion and much loved animal so go with your heart.
