Default Noisy Baby.

I have a beautiful 10 week old blue whippet bitch. I love her to bits but her yelping and whining first thing in the morning and last thing at night is getting me down. (Probably the neighbours too!) She sleeps in a large crate at night and wakes up around 5.30-6.30 am and I take her out in the garden. She is very clean and doesn't soil in her crate. I give her a small feed and put her back in the crate and go back to my bed and that's when she starts! I have tried ignoring her but I am afraid My neighbours will start complaining if I let her go on for too long. I have tried being firm with her and saying no to her in a firm voice and that shuts her up until I go back upstairs then she starts again. I have had her for nearly three weeks now and I have an older dog who sleeps near her crate so she is not alone in the room. What else can I do Does anyone have any good suggestions PLEASE!!

HI Rhonnie and welcome to

Try a radio on low the help her with her separation axiety.

Can you possibly wait to let her out till you get up ? If you are getting up at 7 or 8 am anyway it may work out ok.

My puppy Harvey has just found his voice - He's 10 weeks old and has gone to bed every night so far with no problems - then all of a sudden last night he didnt want to go to bed. I did all my normal things take him out for a wee, give him a cuddle and make a fuss and then put him to bed. But last night he barked and barked i didnt go down to him because everyone says you shouldnt - i left him barking and whining for almost 2 hours at which point i thought that the neighbours would soon be banging my door!

I went downstairs, took him out for another wee, tried to settle him again but the minute i left the room he started barking!!

I tried sitting in the room in the dark - moving further and further away from his crate but the minute i was out of sight he barked!

In the end i left all the lights on, turned the radio on and went to bed leaving him to bark till he feel asleep!

If it happens again tonight i dont know what i'm going to do???

How's your baby doing??
Always wishing it was the weekend!!

Instead of feeding her from her bowl then putting her in her crate, why not fill a Kong with her breakfast and put it in the crate with her instead?
That way it will occupy her for a bit, and you can get a few more minutes rest.
