    Hey devils advocate

    You are so right! OH got stuck right into it last night when I told him about you guys! I cooked our dinner while he fed Charlie which im the first to admit confused Charlie. When Charlie looks at OH sometimes you can see that he's thinking what do I need YOU for! but OH quickly reminded him last night the problem is Charlie LOVES OH its not that ne doesnt love him he reserves a certain amount of energy for OH so that when he gets home they can play! He just doesnt feel like he needs to listen to him so he loves just doesnt respect! But baby steps!

    A Spoodle is from what I understand not a recognised breed but one of the many many many oodles out there he is a Cocker Spaniel x Miniature Poodle I overall disagree with pet stores and how and where they get the pups from but i always have and always will when I walk by go in for a little looksee at the poor little pups in the window and I really fell in love with Charlie and only Charlie and I figure that I know that Im going to love him for life he'll never end up like some of the pet shop babies we hear about in the RSPCA or pound.

    Charlies first full night in the laundry last night went great for us! We already had the best earplugs money could buy! But for little Charlie it was an ordeal he cried the whole night I wake up during the night alot as it is and I could hear the faint (due to the earplugs) cries of my little Charlie! We woke up this morning and gave him not too much attention took him out fed him and got him to go "potty time" and now he's relaxing at the door of the study where I still havent released him from his sit... although its turned into a lie now.

    I am so happy for you

    We have the same problem here. I am with my 2 SBT's all day...I feed them...I train them (or try to...HAHAHAHA)...I take them for walks...I take them to the vet etc. Hubby works full-time, so really...he only spends about 4-5 hours here during weekdays with them. They hardly ever come to him to get a hug and he said he couldn't understand that. I said...well, when you come home...what do YOU do to be with your dogs. So he is feeding them now in the evening...he takes them for a walk in the evening to establish a "connection" with Sumo and Ruby.

    Set some rules and boundaries and stick with them!

    cleasanta! That is our exact situation! OH works a very stressful job! when he gets home he is quite literally mentally drained - which then turns into physically drained as soon as he hits the sofa! and I totally dont blame him! But im sure in the end Charlie will appreciate the effort!

    Remember...we learn new things every day and so does Charlie. Be consistent...be fair...stick to your rules When training...do it in small bursts...10 min...give a break then 10 min again. Puppies attention span is fairly limited and make training fun. Enrol him in puppy pre-school...excellent socialisation!

    My SBT's are my pal...my friends...my dogs! They are spoiled, but on my terms

    Hello,

    I hade great success with the laundry with my puppy Pugalier! I have 2 kids so I took one of the old baby gates I had and put it on the laundry door. Rosie was happy with this because she could see and hear all the activity of the house (my laundry is beside the kitchen). As soon as I saw her getting tired, I would put her in the laundry on her bed and she would learn that that is the place to take naps.

    During the night, I used a technique that I used when my children had trouble sleeping - it's called Sleep Separation (supernanny style!). I moved the puppy's bed right up against the gates and i sat on the other side of the gate with the lights out. Keep your head down to the ground and don't speak. If you have to you can make some shushing sounds. Your puppy should be reassured by your presence but you won't be overdoing it and causing your pup to be too dependent on you. As soon as your puppy quietens and falls asleep, slowly move away. Do this every time and you should have success. Perhaps you can involve your partner too and he can do this one night. If you do it right, it should only take a couple of nights.

    It is important to make sure that your pup is tired when you put them in the laundry as his need for sleep will soon become too strong to resist. I would stick to an evening routine of feed, play, toilet, sleep so your pup will begin to understand consistency.

    Good luck

    You sound like you love your puppy so much, thanks for wanting to do what's best for him.
    I agree that you have to stay your ground. He'll cry at first, but he'll get used to it.

    When I got Keeda I actually slept with her in her room in a sleeping bag for the first week or so to take her out during the night when she needed to go. After about a week she was toilet trained and I started leaving her in there alone - except for a few tiny whimpers the first night she was fine since then. Some dogs just crave constant attention, they have to learn to survive on their own for a few hours at night.
