    DefaultPuppies at night

    Ok I have a problem. My puppy doesn't sleep most of the night. And I have a problem for he wines or pees or poops all the night. He doesn't do that by day for he has learned where he should go potty. What should I do? He sleeps in the living room oh his bed (or better, he is tied there by night). Where do your puppies sleep and what you do with them if they don't sleep at night?

    Dakota (my little baby) has slept with me since she came home in march. For many many mnay months we had a big play time before bed. When she was bigger we would go out in the yard and play for 15-30 mins and come back in have an icecube and a rest. Then to bed we went. Dakota slept MOST of the night. If your puppy isnt sleeping all night Id try to play with him for a while and then let him know its bed time. Id be scared to leave him OUT alone. Either put him to bed in a crate or in bed with you. There are WAY to many things for a puppy to get into. Even if he leaves it alone during the day puppies get bored and will get in to EVERYTHING to have fun!

    The first 3 weeks we had Emma, I slept downstairs in the family room, on the sofa next to her crate.

    Before bedtime, we would exerise her and play hard to wear her out. Then out to potty and bed.

    If she fussed at night, she got to go out, but not for play. just to potty and back in. She learned quickly that no one would play with, or feed her at night.

    Maybe your pup has her days and nights mixed up? Is she sleeping during the day? If so- Wake her up!!! Play play play and keep her going during the day so she is tired at night. But youre not going to be getting a full nights sleep just yet. At least, it took 3-4 weeks with Emma at that age. But eventually, she went from 10pm-530am at about 3.5 months old. Which was a God send!

    Good luck. Your puppys so so cute!

    I agree with the others, lots of playtime before bedtime, and crated at night. The first few nights may be rough, but they get the hang of it. Zora loves her crate and finds comfort there.

    Kairi has only been with us for two nights, but boy is she a crazy one at night. It seems that as soon as the sun goes down, she goes wild! hehe She was found behind a highschool, so who knows how many nights she slept outside alone My boyfriend lives in an apartment complex, so leaving her in the play pen doesn't work cuz she starts screaming. So because he doesn't want the neighbors to complain, she sleeps with him hehe it seems to work great though

    According to your chart your puppy is 9 weeks old. Your expecting way to much out of him at this age. At this age I was getting up with Oona at least twice a night, as well as 6am. Like everyone said exercise before he goes to bed and take the water away before 8pm.

    At 12 weeks, Mellow is still in a crate and he is great in there.* At 9 weeks, I was still getting up twice a night.* At around 10 weeks, he started getting up once a night - around 3 or 4.* Now, at 12 weeks he can sometimes make it until hub gets up for work at 5:15 (I think I've died and gone to heaven that I can sleep until 7:00).* Because hub is a doctor, I take all the middle of the night wakings.* Anyway, he's about 50/50 making it from 11:00pm until 5:15/5:30.* Hub says sometimes he has to wake Mellow up to get him to go outside.*

    Modified to say, if Mellow was not in a crate I have absolutely no doubt that he would pee or poop near where he was.

    How do you tie the puppy to his bed ??? You need to seriously consider investing in a crate. But I agree with Olie, you are expecting a little too much out of your puppy at his age. He will be much quieter if you give him a crate, but I would also expect to get up a few times a night for potty breaks. Potty training overnight takes time and effort, and is also dependent on the age of the puppy.
