How to Get a Puppy to Sleep?
The first Night with your Puppy
When you bring your puppy home, he will explore the house and plays with almost everything he sees. Your puppy will also sleep a lot in the beginning. Nikita had that also, when she was awake she was happy and very energetic. Wanted to know what everything was. When I was cleaning the house, Nikita was always close by, trying to “help” 🙂
We had a crate for Nikita, one that was big enough for her dog bed in it and room for some water and a place to pee, because she was just a puppy she good have a night time accident
And after a very hyper moment, she just fell a sleep again. But then came the first night! Nikita stayed in the kitchen with in her crate, but just when we almost fell a sleep, she started whining. So we waited a while, but she did not stop. Then we could not stand it anymore, so we brought her, crate and all into the bedroom. That went very well.
In the beginning we did not want Nikita to sleep on hour bed, so we had to do something to fix this problem.
- My #1 solutions is: wear a t-shirt for 24 hours so it has got your smell al over it and put it in the crate with your dog.
With Nikita this worked very well, no more whining. My neighbours did the same and had the same result, they are still grateful for the tip 🙂
Another option is shown in the video below. If you can sing, because I really cannot, it will be a kind of abuse if I start to sing. But assume that you can sing, you can sing your dog a sweet lullaby.
Please watch this very sweet video below, I must admit he is not the best singer also 🙂
