Our new 9-week old puppy, Max, has been with us for 6 nights and cries and barks for about 15 minutes when we put her in the safe room (her crate is there with the door open, which she likes to sleep in--no problem right from the start). We ignore it but then about an hour later she starts again. We set the alarm for 3:00 a.m. (put her to bed at midnight) and she peed outside. We took her out again at 5:30 when we heard her barking/crying and all she did was play. When we put her back in her safe room, she cried/whined for another 15 minutes, quiet for 20 minutes and started crying all over! We haven't gotten much sleep this past week! We tried putting a talk-radio station on in her room but that didn't help. There is a toy in her crate, which she seems to like. We can't have her in our bedroom due to allergies. Any suggestions? Is there hope for sleep in the near future?
