Hi i just got a baby labrador. Hes 6 weeks old.
He was hand raised as he had to be separated from his mother after birth and for 6 weeks he grew up with his brothers and sisters so he doesnt miss his mother.
He goes to sleep about 11-12 (in the bathroom, door closed, lights off).. the first night he woke up at 3.. cried(realllllllly loud) till 6 i couldnt take it anymore after that. Not sure if thats bad giving in after 3 hours.
Last night he lasted till 4: 30.... but cried till 6:30 and i let him out again.
I want him to stay there till about 8. Also he will go outside soon once he grows up a bit.
Is it worth it to keep trying to ignore him if hes eventually going to sleep outside anyway? Also did i do bad by giving in even though it was many hours later?
Any advice is appreciated thanks
