[Behavior] Really stressed out about crate training

Here`s another great article:

On Tuesday, we brought home our 8 week old German Shorthaired Pointer. She is exactly what I was looking for in a dog, and I have already bonded with her WAY quicker than I thought.

Although I am happy about that, it's making me worried about separation anxiety, because GSPs are prone to it – and she is already very attached to me and my husband.

I am getting myself so stressed about crate training because of it. She has only been home with us for 3 days (we picked her up Tuesday night) and is pretty whiny whenever we leave the room – that seems relatively normal though? I mean, it's only been 3 days since she has been separated from her litter and mother?

She was really good in her crate overnight last night, and goes in on her own to sleep when she naps, but I don't think she is ready at all to be in there during the day with the door closed. She even whines when I'm in the same ROOM as her but am not giving her attention (I ignore it completely and then reward her when she settles on her own).

Does this sound normal or is it the beginning of separation anxiety? I've been feeding her in her crate with the door closed and giving her frozen kongs in there, but it's only about 2 minutes before she starts to want out (I try to notice the signs that she is ready to leave before anything happens so she doesn't think whining gets her out)

This is not my first puppy – we also have a 2-year-old mix, but he was essentially crate trained when we adopted him so I never had to deal with any of this.
