Re: Puppy crying all night...

Is it time? I wish she would figure it out.... some of it isn't just me or my husband. I seriously tried and got so frustrated.

Re: Puppy crying all night...

Cash is a rescue from my vet and after his surgery my vet used to take him home with him every night rather than leave him at the clinic. When Cash came to live with me, these are the instructions the vet gave me:
- he likes to sleep in bed with you
- he likes his own pillow
- in the morning he likes to be carried outside and he will go to the bathroom as soon as his feet hit the ground so make sure you carry him to the place you want him to go to the bathroom

I still give my vet a hard time for spoiling him so bad! Now a year and a half later, Cash starts the night cuddled on the bed between me and Penny, but at some point in the middle of the night he goes out and sleeps on the couch.

If you are going the crate route, I'd encourage you to persevere and stick it out, they will eventually get it. If you have the dog in your bed, you will eventually get a routine that works for everyone (oh and as we all know, they are great cuddlers)

Re: Puppy crying all night...

its a tough one, last night he slept all night until 5am, i think great hes starting to get it. this might last a night or two and them we will have a week of crying again. If the crying was constant everynight i would think ok something has to change here but just as I'm getting to that stage he has two or three good nights!!! But hes only 4 months old so Ive got to cut him some slack

Re: Puppy crying all night...

I'm guessing you let him on the bed or couch then?

You need to let him out to relieve himself, and even if he doesn't, he goes back in his crate, no cuddles, playtime or anything. If 5am is not his wake up time, you'll need to teach him that. You have to live through the screaming for a few weeks until he gets it.

Here is the power of positive association with dogs. Watson came home in a pet carrier supplied by the breeder (he was flown here). Poor guy eliminated ALL OVER the carrier. When I took him out, he was covered in poop and reeked! A couple of days later, he had to go back into the (cleaned) carrier for his first vet appointment. When I opened it up for him, he darted right in and laid down. I could tell the breeder had done her best to make this carrier the best place ever for him so that he would be prepared for his flight to us. This is what you have to do with your pup. It doesn't happen overnight, but it does work with time and persistence.

Re: Puppy crying all night...

And the confidence it will work and the belief that IF what you are asking is reasonable then the pup needs to know you will insist though also help him by doing all within your power to make it pleasant and perhaps build it slowEXCEPT give in .....that is if its really important to you and your living with a dog . If its not important then just enjoy the company and easy cuddles.
Do you cover the cage ? I found that worked ..that and setting the alarm and peeing her at 2 and 5 ..waking her up to do it ...not talking and popping her straight back in cage.
She s now 4 months and sleeps thro til 7 though if I pop her in earlier than 12 my son who stays up late pees her at 2 still.
You ll need the same attitude to other training things later so you end up with a lovely civilised Viszla . #stillworkingonit

Sam is tired :
I never throw him in then crate and slam the door because I want him out of the way, anymore.
He earned he's way out (see pics attached ;D last one, that's a king size bed)
I place him in the crate because he needs to rest in peace and quiet. Something he could never achieve on a sofa or out of crate, IMO. (IMO, but it's been documented before..see pro trainer Ken, on crates)
