Last night was Tysons first night with us and let me tell you it was a looooong one. I work 2nd shift so i'm usually up until 1 or 2 in the morning which is a good thing because that way he won't be in his cage at night quite so long. Anyway.... I put him in his cage around 1:30am after a nap pee and another partial nap. He whined a little bit but then went to sleep while I was in the room. Then he woke up and started barking & crying and I was waiting for him to stop so I could let him out without him thinking that whining will make us come and let him out but he just kept it up for about 30-45 minutes!!! Finally I got up and let him out. He had peed and pooped in his cage a little bit so I got it cleaned up and put him back in there. He started to cry and whine with me still in the room trying to calm him down. Finally I went to bed and just hoped he would get tired and go back to sleep. He finally did.....after an hour!!! He slept for about an hour then woke up cried for an hour etc etc until my girlfriend finally got up with him this morning. She laid down with him on the couch and he went right to sleep. Every puppy I've ever had in the past will whine, cry, bark, etc for about 15 20 minutes then give up but he is a determined little guy. I know every puppy is different and it will take some time but does anyone have some suggestions for me to help him at night???
