Yesterday we just got a new puppy. I know it was the first night and everythig, but I guess I have never ran into this problem with my past dogs. The puppy constantly whines and cries. Barely settles down, always wanting to be held and still whines. Is this puppy old enuf to be away from the mother? And if so, do you have any advice for me how to make her environment easier for her to handle being weened?
From your question I can almost guarantee the pup was not bought from a good breeder. A good breeder would have given you advice on how tO make the transition from the breeder's home to your's as low stress on the pup and you as possible. A good breeder would not let a pup leave too soon. Please contact the person you got this pup from and insist that person help you with this problem.
How old is the puppy, and what breed? For now, just give him as much cuddling as you can, and I agree with contacting the breeder, if there was one. I'm wondering if you bought this little guy from a pet store?
