    To settle self during night.
    Dont interact with the pup.

    Proof:
    my husband has never, ever, ever, given my pups one ounce of loving tender care during the night. And within weeks of moving in, they never, ever went to him during the night, they came to me, the weak link.

    Interspecies proof: if toddler wakes daddy, he shouts swears, gets angry. If toddler wakes mummy, she feeds, cuddles, soothes and puts back to bed. Toddlers didnt ever wake daddy up, only mummy.

    We decided not to crate train, but are instead confinement training (she has her own little space).
    So you're training the same thing without a crate involved. The only way to get her back to where you want her to be is to be awake and show her. She doesnt need a clock and TV, seriously turn them off and wear her out before bed time. Time to put her big girl pants on.

    As for the biting, if she latches on just slip the thumb under the tongue and press gently, say nothing and let her get the idea it's unacceptable. Offer you hand and if she licks it give her a pat and say good dog so she understands where the limit is. If she sees it as a game, get up and walk away. Mouthing is something to be dealt with early and quickly. Unless you're training a protection dog there's no reason to redirect the idea onto a toy with no consequence.

    Nekhbet, that slipping finger under pup's tongues. Ive never heard it before, and was curious, as we have a frequent land shark visitor here in my son's pup. Who's very pushy kelpie x airedale pup, and bites (albeit with inhibition) so tried it....
    Ha ha ha, fantastic trick! 100% success. 2 fingers under her tongue goes later, and she's stopped biting me! yeah! no more scarred hands at work to explain lol

    Others here have good suggestions. For my last puppy, I kept him in one of those baby pens outside the back door [on decking - full shelter] (you can pick them up from a baby shop or somewhere like Target/Kmart cheaply - the plastic is very tough, and it can be used as a crate until the puppy gets big enough to jump out (which in a medium + breed isn't long lol). He cried for a week, which was the longest I'd ever had a puppy cry for - the pup before that, Bonnie, cried for just 2 nights. I think it's just luck of the draw. I had newspaper all over the floor so the tiles wouldn't stink, which I'd then put on the grass so he knew where to go (didn't really work - he still goes up the back on the concrete, but it's the furthest point from the house, and he never does it in the 'main' area under the veranda unless it's raining.
