I have a 8 month old boxer boy named tucker. Tucker hasn't been sleeping all night. I got a new bed 2 days ago and I feel like ever since I got the new bed. he hasn't been sleeping. I need help on how to help him sleep all night. I have always been lucky on him sleeping all night. He has a wireless fence so he gets plenty of exercise. What can I do? I'm so tired :cry_baby:

Not sure if you've done any training with him (sit,stay,down,come,etc.) but mental exercise is more tiring than physical exercise. So start doing some training with him every day. If he knows all that already then google dog tricks or something to train

I will look into what else I can teach him. he's almost fully trained

Is he pacing your bedroom? Get him a dog bed, place it in the corner of your bedroom beside your bed and tell him to lay down. Use treats to reward good behaviour.

Also, a wireless fence system does not mean your dog is getting enough physical or mental stimulation. Do you throw a ball for him daily, take him for walks?
