    As you know DA, things rarely go to plan where a puppy is concerned.

    I'm sure once Inca is more settled and knows her way round she will be happy to be outside but, for now, a good nights sleep is best for everyone's sanity.

    ****still grinning***
    With Shads, once he had settled and anxiety lifted by his being close the first few weeks at night was then happy to either be outside, on a couch or in on the floor or bed with us, whatever was his or our preference at the time. I feel it helped mould a well adjusted dog. (mold...mould????)

    You are spot on TKay. I think I will sleep well tonight. For that matter, I think she will too.

    Not a problem Occy, but as I do not get decent sleep very often, I just don't need to have my sleep broken even further. Hopefully she will sleep through though, so shall see what happens.

    Devil's Advocate I am not sure if i am have missed a post somewhere, but my puppy sleep's in our room too after she chewed the door frame of our washing room. The breeder said she might just want to be next to mum and dad. So we have brought her a bed and she now sleeps in the corner of our room. Not what we were going to do, but it have worked out really good.

    Mollie first slept in my bed, but now I see it as increase in 'confidence' now that she happily sleeps on her cushion on the floor.
    If I were you, I'd let Inca sleep with you if it makes her feel more confident and less-stressed Maybe try giving her a 'special' cushion and gradually move it to wherever you prefer her to sleep, when she is more confident to sleep alone. It worked for Mollie!
    Enjoy your cuddly puppy sleeping beside you!
    Goodluck!

    Griffen started out sleeping in the bathroom next to my bedroom, anywhere else and he'd howl the house down.
    He did eventually grow out of it and now sleeps in the doggy rumpus room.
    Maybe once Inca has settled in and more confident you could move her out of the bed room.

    LoL DA

    What ever works right? it's not so bad to have a puppy next to your bed. I'm sure there will be a time as she gets older where she will be fine about sleeping outside. Especially at that 8 month old rebel age...

    Frosty copes with all sorts of things at 14 months that would make her into a miserable sulking heap when she was 12 weeks.
