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