You're so mean.
Actually a-bulls advice wasn't bad. Her dog isn't neurotic that we know of...

For the record.. I do not plan on sitting/sleeping/playing the guitar every night to soothe Brock. I just mentioned it to let you all know that I have literally tried everything, including giving him attention incase it was just a matter of him feeling alone and scared in the crate. It didnt work, therefore I dont plan on continuing to do it.
msvette2u - I agree 100% that 6 weeks is young to be away from its mother & siblings, but as Ive explained before.. If I didnt take him at 6 weeks, someone else would have and who knows where he would have wound up.
cheeky - I use a bottle and a toy that ticks like the clock. (mentioned it in my last reply)
I know you're all about pooped out on advice and solutions, god knows Im pooped out on them myself. Maybe its just something he'll grow out of. One can only hope!

I got Os young at 6.5 weeks. As I remember, It took at least 2-3 weeks to completely stop the crying when he was alone, either in his crate or for a little supervised (from the window) alone time in the yard. We used the ignore tactic with some corrections once he understood "no!" and ignored it.
