Okay, a little background history... we got Koa this past Friday from the breeder. We've been keeping him in the kitchen, blocked off with a baby gate with his crate so he doesn't get into any mischef during the night. Two nights ago, we gave him a blanket, a toy from the breeder (with mom and litter scent), his new bobo, and a hot water bottle. HE DID NOT SLEEP AT ALL... just cried bloody murder the entire night till 5AM - I gave up and let him sleep next to me on the floor while I was on the couch. Last night, we changed it up a bit. We covered the top of his crate with towels, added a ticking clock, added a shirt with my scent and one with my wife's scent, turned on a radio with some smooth jazz, along with all the other stuff from the previous night. He slept like a CHAMP! No whining at all until 3:45 with little whimper to go out to pee. Once we came back in, right to sleep in his crate! I'm not sure which dog I'll get tonight though... I'm hoping for the SLEEPING one!
