Thread: Puppy Night Crying!!!

  1. #1

    Question Puppy Night Crying!!!

    I have a puppy with a family & it's been 3 nights now & the puppy is still yelping/barking & crying all night & then sleeping all day. She rang this morning asking for advise but I'm afraid I am guilty of allowing ours into our bedroom with some sleeping on our bed & most in their own beds or crates but in our room. The new puppy owner is locking the 9wk pup in her laundry with a basket, food/water & toys but she just wont have a bar of it. They also have a mature Maltese desexed bitch that is in their bed now since their other dog died but they are hoping to put both dogs back outside at night once the puppy is old enough. Which was how they'd always had their dogs but when they lost a dog the Maltese was depressed & they relented & allowed her to sleep with them.
    Both dogs are allowed in & out of a day & are much loved family members.
    Dose anyone have any advise for her(I am going to send her a link to this thread & also invite her to join herself) that may help settle the puppy of a night.
    I have sent her some links on crate training etc but was thinking someone here may know something to help her.

    Maybe putting a piece of used clothing in there, having the scent may help.
    Many will say just let it cry and it will diminish in time.
    I however slept in the loungeroom with a pup may years ago then he graduated to the bedroom. He was to be inside at nights though so it is a different scenario.

    If the aim is to eventually have them both outside at nights maybe an idea is that both dogs go in the laundry then later both outside.

    Di,
    Why hadn't I thought of that, I had suggested putting both together outside but with the Maltese being in bed now I feared she'd see it as being all the puppys doing & take it out on the pup. But starting with a laundry move for the Maltese may lessen the upset over the move as she is still inside this way. it may also give the Maltesse & puppy time to bond so that when they do the move to having their baskets out on the veranda they will already be firm mates. Just might be worth a try as I know the pups biggest problem with sleeping in the laundry is the being alone & missing her littermates.

    Sometimes we can be just too close to a situation and then have a duhhhhhhhh moment.
    I have, many times, lol.

    If you look back through the pages you will see many threads on this topic.
    It may be an idea to link to the best ones in here you feel might help if this owner joins up.

    We let our dog sleep in the bed with us. They would fall asleep on the bed then in the middle of the night I would put Skip onto the dog bed that is near the bed. She wouldn't get off it until I got up to let her out of a piss.

    I wasn't living with OH when we got boss. He let him sleep in the bed after trying to
    Crate train him.

    That reminds me of having a unwell dog & hanging my arm into her box as she was more settled just to have me touching her, well anyway I fell asleep & woke hrs later with the deadest arm that burned like hell when I moved it as the cirrculation returned, lol. Oh by the way the only reason she was not in the bed was due to bladder issues.

    We do not encourage newfs on bed, we would have to get a King-size bed (usually two to three newfs) . When i have a Sunday sleep-in, Annabelle comes for a cuddle on bed, she loves that. her special time
