I allow my pup to sleep in bed with me, i sleep alone, I started this because he whines continuously when in the crate, and if he is quiet for a little while, as soon as i get up to go to the bathroom which i do alot, he starts again. how can i stop this, i don't mind him sleeping with me, but need him to get used to being in crate quietly. He is a 12wk old chi-papillon mix i've had about 2 weeks, flown from a breeder who raised alot of other pups.
He needs to sleep with a warn water bottle or alarm clock under him he is still very much a puppy and missing his mother and siblings sometimes it can take up to a month for puppy to get used to being the only one and believe me when he does figure that out things will get a whole lot better. Let him know he is loved and never scold him he is too young yet to know the diffrence usally chis are very smart as I have 2 myself and I put a heating pad in his crate and to this day 4 months later he still sleeps with it he is just over a pound.
sounds to me like the problem is he's trained you to come when he whines. That means as long as he keeps whining and you keep coming when he wants you, he'll never stop whining. Leave him in there when you want him to be in there and ignore the whines. Put him in a room with the tv on a t a very low volume, or a ticking alarm clock or radio so he has some 'comfort noises.
He also has bad habit of chewing, caught him chewing plugged in electrical cord, i keep him in same room with me at all times or crate, I have been ignoring him, hubby gets pissed with whining, so will train him more when he is not home to stay in crate for longer periods, like when i'm getting ready for work in am, will let him run around, the when drying my hair, put him in crate since i can't watch him then he starts, so today put towel over crate, was quieter, only problem is he has severe diarrhea, so have to check him to see if he has to poop or is just noisy, think he pooped ten times yesterday.
Good luck with vet, hope everything is ok. About the crate, I know he is still a baby, but here is my experience. My pug loves her crate and always did. A couple of years ago my husband was out of town for two weeks and I let the dogs sleep in my room with me, after that she didn't want to sleep in her crate anymore. She whined and whined, my mistake. Finally I just had to let her whine until she stopped and after that everything was ok. Now I can keep the door open and she will go in there to sleep on her own. Of course she is 4 years old now. What I discovered through trial and error, and please don't jump me for this, I know everyone has differing opinions on this one, it's kind of like a baby. When my children were born they slept in their cribs from the day they came home from the hospital and that's where they became used to sleeping. I have many friends who let their babies sleep in their room or bed and then when the babies were older (some much older) they didn't want to sleep in their rooms. I never had that problem and I believe it's because I started them in their rooms from the beginning. I even worked with a girl that had a 12 year old that wouldn't sleep in his own room because he never had. Well, guess what, she is now divorced. Of course, there was more to it than that, but it played a part. Just to be fair, I also know people that have done it and eventually had no problems, but it was always a difficult transition to get the baby from the parents room to their own. I don't think it's too different for animals. However, you have the problem with diareah (sp?) and that may be different. Good luck.
Part of the reason i started letting him sleep with me was because of the diarrhea, when he gets all worked up, he starts to poop, in the crate all over himself and as i've stated elsewhere then he tries to eat it, i've found by letting him in bed with me he will only get up once or twice to pee, i take him out, and also can hold bowels for 5-6 hrs, guess he is all pooped out, by then, lol. i agree with you, will crate him during day and try night when diarrhea is gone.
