Help! getting puppy to sleep

Post by Minh » Wed, 29 Jul 1998 04:00:00



Hi everyone,

Can someone help me with this problem.

We have a 6 month old Pom and at night we put it to sleep in it's basket
in a laundry room and close the door. The trouble is it does not like
it. It would cry for a while but gradually fall asleep.

We tried not to put it in its room and when we all go to sleep it soon
starts crying (probably due to loneliness). However if we leave it
during the day alone, he's OK.

my parents think it is unacceptable to keep the dog in our bedrooms.
what can we do?

Wait until your parents are asleep and then get the dog.

Put a wind up clock in the basket with her/him, or beside it.  We did this
in the crate, and our pup fell asleep every night with her head on the
towel that was wrapped around the clock.  A sense of mamma's heartbeat?
Who knows.. and who cares,   it worked <S>  Of course, turn OFF the alarm
and remove all winder things that could possibly come off and be swallowed.
 Eventually, she became more interested in playing with it so we moved it
outside the crate, then turned it off all together.  Now she just loves to
send it across the floor as a hockey puck.  It's her favorite toy to chase.

Get new parents?

Seriously, your parents are simply *wrong.*

Put the puppy in your bedroom, right next to your bed.

That's where she belongs, and that's where she'll remain QUIET.

Tell your parents to see the ol' Dogman.  

I'll straighten them out.

Why lock it in a room

Discuss this with them put the basket in the bedroom and the dig sleeps
in there.  Why should the bedroom be different from any other room.

We tried, when Maggie (JRT) was a pup, to keep her in our den.  She
cried like someone was pulling out her hair, one piece at a time.  We
moved the crate next to our bed, and she has slept there like a rock
ever since.  She just wants to know where we are.  Even when my husband
or I go into the bedroom to sack out for a few hours, she cries at the
closed door until we let her in to snuggle next to us.

Move that puppy!!
