He is adorable, how old is he? I keep a blanket over my puppys crate too.
As for getting up in the middle of the night.. I used to with mine when he was a baby. They can't hold their pee very long. But try to make sure he doesn't drink much before bed and he does go potty. He should stop and get used to sleeping through the night soon. Good luck!
Oh that is normal for 14 weeks. Don't worry he will get through this stage. Just take him directly outside when he cries and as soon as he pees/poops praise him and take him directly back to the crate. Good luck!!
My aunts dog had puppies and she kept 2. So right now there 6 wks old and there housetraining them. Housetraining them is not very hard if your dedicaded. Yes we have to take them in the middle of the night, cuz come on if they have to go they have to go. Just remember after they use the restroom when you tell them to, praise them so they can know that that's what makes you proud of them. My uncle had to get up at 3 a.m to take them out, then i took them out at 6 a.m to take them again, but we have been teaching them for about five days now and there hasn't been an accident once. So GOOD LUCK!
