Take heart...my westiepoo also was very bad about nipping at our hands when he was a young pup. Very seldom now (he is 2 yrs.) - only when he is overly excited. I too give him a treat when he goes in his crate. Your puppy will imitate your emotions - if you act sorry and apologetic for putting him in his crate, he will play on that. My Jimi recognizes yhe words "I'll be right back" and settles down very contentedly. Try putting her in her crate with a treat while you are home. She should learn to consider her crate as her haven.
