    Question Night Time!

    We have a 8 week old Jack Russell and of a night she makes a really funny noise. It isnt a bark or a whinge, just a really loud, squeal kind of. She is currently sleeping in the laundry with her water, food, toys, bed, clock (everything possible) and nothing seems to be what she wants!

    We want her to start sleeping outside in a pen with a dog kennel, but dont know how to "break" her in to sleeping out there making that noise. Any suggestions?

    perhaps you think it is a dog

    If she is only 8 weeks, she's obviously still adjusting to life at her new home (i'm hoping you only JUST got her, coz she shouldn't have come to you any younger than that). She is only a baby and needs some time to get used to everything.. If the laundry is just for sleeping then try not to over crowd it with too much stuff other than what she needs. One of my boys howled for two nights straight when we first got him (the neighbours hated us!), but he soon settled and got over it. When she is making the noise don't go and baby her coz then she'll no how to get your attention at 2am! The kind of noise you're describing could just be her way of sooking for her mum or litter.
    When do you plan on having her sleep outside? Hopefully not for a while coz she does need to be kept safe till she's old enough.
    Try putting her out in her pen to sleep just during the day (in good weather) and keep her in of a night. That way she eases into it and it's not too much of a shock.

    Even if you want her to be an 'outside' dog you should still let her inside to be with you. Dogs need to be part of a family so unless you live outside with her, she should be let in with you.

    Goodluck!

    I had the same problem when we first got our Jack Russell pup several years ago. She made a strange noise for a few nights, but we didn't go and console her, otherwise she wouldn't have learned. It takes a bit of time and patience, but they get used to it in the end

    Maybe introduce her to your neighbours and let them know she's a new bub and is still adjusting. Hopefully she'll melt theirt hearts so that if they hear her they're less likely to get cranky...

    i agree with ally, don't ignore if she barking or crying,it's need time and patience but she will be familiar with that situation.
