A little bit more information about Ginger would be helpful. What kind of dog is she and how old? How long has this been going on? Is she having to sleep in this or is her crate big enough that she can do this in one end and sleep in another? Any medical issues lately?

The crate should only be big enough for her to stand and turn around comfortly in. HOw big is the crate you have?

Healthy dogs usually do not go where they eat or sleep.

she can stand up and turn around fine in it. It is so weird!

Has anything new and/or threatening happened to her - a move, a new baby, a new pet, a family member leaving home? Maybe she has regressed because she is stressed or doesn't get the same attention as in the past.

hmm.,... Well she should only be able to stand and turn in it. It shouldn't be too big. It should fit her size good. Just clarifying. If this isn't the case maybe you need to have the vet run more tests. Or go for a second opinion.

You can also seek a behavioural specialist.
