Welcome to motherhood~ It's going to take time for the pup to readjust. Remember he's used to being with mom and his littermates, now he;s all alone. Try a few of the tricks listed in other threads, the pup pillow with the heartbeat, ask the breeder for a blankie with mom's scent on it....just be patient and give it some time.
Sleep? haha. I didn't sleep the first few weeks I had Riley. You have to put him in the crate and let him whine & cry until he falls asleep. Keep in mind he will have to pee/poop every few hours. Babies can only hold it so long.
You can try wrapped up pillows & put them next to her, or put a ticking clock under some blankets so it could sound like the mother's heartbeat. She may whine & cry but she will fall asleep sooner or later.
I usually sleep with mine, but for what its worth my dog seems to be bothered by being in his crate and still being able to see out. So I throw a towel over 3 sides and he is fine. Congrats hope you enjoy
When we got Cody we would put him in his cage at bedtime and I would lay down beside the cage and let him get comfortable and then I would get up and leave. At first I had to stay there about an hour then little by little it got shorter and after several weeks I didn't have to do that anymore. If you look at it the right way, it is a very nice bonding time for you and your pet. I would just talk to Cody and stroke him a little, just to sooth him and myself. lol Good luck and enjoy.
Once I get my puppy I would want to sleep with it too! When my cousin got hers she would whine all night & it was so sad hearing her whine, you just want to pick her up & sleep with her! I thought there would be dominance issues.
Do they get use to their own bed if you let the puppy sleep with you? Or will they learn to sleep in their own bed sooner or later?
When I get my yorkie, I don't think I will sleep with her because I might rollover & squish her
JustPuppyLove- I would crate train first, then later on once puppy will sleep in its crate and it house broken and has some obedience training then think about letting the puppy sleep with you. With my dog, she knows that she's only supposed to get on the bed if she's asked, but that was only after obedience training and crate training. We started with the crate, then when I could trust her she started sleeping on a blanket next to the bed. It works out fine. But, you want puppy to understand who sets the rules in the house and that's you. Not the other way around.
I have the same problem with Connor. He'll whine and bark all night long. The first night I had him I was up from 2 am on and I had to work the next morning. He's been getting better now that he is getting use to being in there at nights and when I'm at work.
