We've just got a new puppy home a few days ago - things aren't going too bad and wanted to bounce our routine off STW doggers to see if we can improve on what we are doing.
Our puppy is going to bed in the kitchen in a puppy pen with paper down and water - we have also got a crate in the puppy pen as a place to sleep but we leave the door open.
We're taking her to toilet before bed at about 11pm after some vigorous play to wear her out. Once we turn the lights off she crys for about 10-20minutes and then settles.
However, we are finding that when we get up in the night for toilet, she doesn't want to go back to bed and whines for 30-60minutes. Any ideas on how we can reduce the whining or is this normal?
